Abstract

Minimally invasive cardiac surgery for the treatment of congenital heart disease (CHD) continues to expand from simple extracardiac procedures to repair of intracardiac defects. The incentive for the development of such techniques is the avoidance of the known longterm morbidity of thoracotomy and sternotomy in children, as well as the reduction of postoperative pain, respiratory dysfunction, and length of hospital stay.
