Mitral valve prolapse is one of the most common indications for surgical correction of mitral valve pathology. From January 2013 to April 2016, 59 surgeries on mitral valve were performed by a single surgeon utilizing a minimally invasive approach. The total operating time was 213,7±33,4min. The aortic cross clamp and cardiopulmonary bypass times were 82,8±15,3 min. and 122,1±25,5 min., respectively. Mechanical ventilation after surgery was 75,1±55,3 min. Chest tube drainage was 186,2±97,8 ml. The intensive care unit and overall hospital length of stay were 25,6±10,2 hrs. and 7,5±3,5 days, respectively. Echocardiography showed positive cardiac remodeling on the 6th postoperative day. There were no thoracotomy wound complications. Postoperative mortality rate was 0%. The received data show, that minimally invasive repair of mitral valve prolapse is quite feasible and effective procedure, when performed by an experienced surgeon.
