When minimally invasive interventions such as cardiac catheterization or valvuloplasty are not an option to treat congenital heart disease, a pediatric or adult heart care physician may recommend robotic assisted surgery as the best course for treatment.
Heart & Vascular Care Treatments
Robotic-assisted heart valve repair or replacement surgery using the da Vinci® Si Surgical System is performed to mend defective or diseased mitral or tricuspid valves.
Robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System reduces the risks associated with the use of the heart-lung machine—cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and allows for a faster recovery.
This minimally invasive procedure, similar to MAZE surgery, uses ablation rather than a scalpel and is performed with the da Vinci® Si Surgical System, a robotic computer technology.
Septal myomectomy surgery is performed to remove part of an enlarged heart muscle called the septal muscle.
The human heart is a muscular organ that is made up of four chambers and there are four valves that allow blood to flow through the heart.
Valvuloplasty is a procedure performed to increase the opening of a narrowed or defective valve in the heart.
