Abstract: Minimally invasive mitral valve repair (MIMVR) is a relatively new alternative to median sternotomy for valvular heart surgery, and has become increasingly appealing due to its improved cosmetic results and more rapid recovery time. Patients suffering mitral valve disease are increasingly turning to their medical practitioners for advice regarding this procedure. It is the aim of this article to provide a review of MIMVR to allow students and doctors to better understand this recent development in cardiac surgical therapy.
