VELASQUEZ, Oscar; MORALES, Sonia; ALZATE, Fernando  and  CASTANO, Yuli. Alternative cannulation for minimally invasive surgery of right heart chambers. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.5, pp.332-334. ISSN 0120-5633.

Minimally invasive surgery became more than an alternative, but a possible first election method for valve surgery because of its benefits in terms of infection, bleeding, hospital stay and functionality. The cannulation of both cava veins without altering the parameters of the minimal invasiveness may mean an effective reduction of the risks described in other options and allows us to perform procedures in both left and right cavities effectively.

Keywords : Cardiac surgery; Minimally invasive.
