Closed Mitral Valvotomy

Closed Mitral Valvotomy

 Indications for closed valvotomy differ from those for open valvotomy: they are single valve lesion, sinus rhythm and no calcification. Surgical mitral valvotomy or commissurotomy can be carried out using either a closed technique, which does not necessitate the use of full cardiopulmonary bypass, or using an open technique with full cardiopulmonary bypass. Both procedures may be carried out through a median sternotomy or left thoracotomy incision.
