MOJENA MORFA, Guillermo et al. Mitral valve surgery with the beating heart. Rev cubana med [online]. 2008, vol.47, n.2. ISSN 0034-7523.

In the last years there has been a growing interest to carry out cardiac surgery operations (mainly coronary artery bypass grafting) with the beating heart, without aortic cross clamp and whenever it is possible without the use of extracorporeal circulation, because it has been demonstrated that better results can be obtained that those are observed with the traditional techniques of myocardial protection with cardioplegic solutions. This method led us to also consider the possibility to carry out surgery of the mitral valve with continuous coronary perfusion and the beating heart. In the presently work we proposed as objective to expose the form in that we have carried out this surgical technique of myocardial protection in the period understood between January of the 2000 and December of the 2001 in our Institution, as well as to evaluate its security and effectiveness. The results of our study suggest that the mitral valve surgery carried out with the beating heart constitutes an alternative method of myocardial protection, sure and easily reproduce with which satisfactory clinical results can be reached.
