minimally invasive valve replacement

Posted By Leesa on November 18, 1998 at 15:06:51:







Hi.
Do you feel that the minimally invasive valve replacement procedure should not be used or is not preferrable on the aortic valve?  I had heard this on a television special and was curious as to your opinion. Has the minimally invasive aortic valve replacement ever been performed at the Cleveland Clinic and what is their track record with this particular procedure? (bicuspid aortic valve replacement).  Thank you for your time and consideration.
