Right Ventricular Failure Post Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Repair: Early Diagnosis and Management; Case Report


Abstract: 53 year old male was diagnosed with severe mitral valve regurgitation (MR) with P2 prolapse and ruptured cord. He underwent Minimally-Invasive (MIS) Mitral Valve (MV) repair via right mini-thoracotomy approach and femoral-femoral (fem-fem) cut down for Cardio-Pulmonary bypass (CPB). He developed Right ventricular failure (RVF) post operatively that was managed with Veno-Arterial (VA) Extracorporeal circulation Membrane oxygenator (ECMO) temporary mechanical heart support. He fully recovered and discharged home. Here we present a successful management of a rare complication that carries a high mortality after cardiac surgery. The key of successful management is early diagnosis and early management also discussed.
