Objective: To compare the different clinical effects of minimally invasive right thoracic incision and traditional incision on the treatment of patients with mitral valve disease.
Methods: Eighty patients with mitral valve disease were randomly divided into traditional group (n=40) and minimally invasive group (n=40). The clinical indexes during and after operation were compared between the two groups.
Results: Compared with the traditional group, the aortic cross clamp time, the time of cardiopulmonary bypass and the intraoperative blood loss were significantly decreased in the minimally invasive group, which were significantly lower than those in the traditional group (P<0.05).
Conclusion: With significant clinical effect and large clinical advantage, the minimally invasive right thoracic incision has a greater improvement effect than traditional incision for mitral valve treatment. It is worthy of further promotion in the clinical application.
