Abstract

Trans-septal appraoch has become an established alternative technique to the conventional right lateral appraoch in cases where inadequate exposure of the mitral valve is anticipated. This is espeically useful in cases undergoing operation for combined patients who had combined mitral and tricuspid vavular lesion. All the patiens had excellent exposure of the mitral valve. There were no rhythm problems. Thus the trans-septal appraoch is a useful technique for mitral vlave surgery especially when there is associated tricuspid valvular disease.
