Approached through a right minithoracotomy, this technique involves femoral arterial and venous cannulation and transmural ablation of the pulmonary veins using Cryoablation through a left atriotomy on the arrested heart through an endocardial approach. The Right atrium can also be ablated using this approach
Approached through a right minithoracotomy, this technique typically involves femoral arterial and venous cannulation along with cannulation of the right internal jugular vein. A patch repair or direct repair is then perfomed through an incision in the right atrium.
Approached through a right minithoracotomy, this technique typically involves femoral arterial and venous cannulation along with cannulation of the right internal jugular vein. Repair is performed most frequently through the placement of neochords or resection with annuloplasty. If valve requires replacement then through the same approach the valve can be replaced.
Through a lateral thoracotomy approach the left internal thoracic artery is harvested directly and then through the same incision single, double, or triple bypass can be performed using radial artery, or saphenous vein graft as other conduits
Following the minimally invasive robotic-assisted anastomosis of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and confirmation of a patent left internal thoracic artery, the other diseased non-LAD coronary arteries would undergo percutaneous coronary intervention during the same setting (One stage) or another setting (two stage). Performed with interventional cardiologists part of LHSC’s heart team model.
Approached through the right chest with port access. Involves right femoral vein and artery cannulation and robotic-assisted mitral valve repair.
Trans valvular aortic valve implantation utilizing either the transfemoral, transapical, direct aortic, or trans axiallary artery approach. All procedures are performed in the hybrid operating room using a cardiac team approach with surgeons, cardiologists, and cardiac anesthesia involved in patient care regardless of the approach utilized. We are currently using or have used the following systems: Edwards Sapien XT, Medtronic Core Valve and Evolut R, and Symetis Acurate-TA and Acurate-neo
