But recently, minimally invasive approach by the right parasternal incision for valvular heart disease was introduced with the many merits by small incision. We experienced 1 case of mitral valve repalcement by right parasternal incision and extended transseptal approach. This technique has no specific complications or problems compared with the median sternotomy and was proven by the excellent exposure. Cosmetically, the patient was satisfied with the incision.
