Historically, patients with advanced structural heart disease have required major surgery to correct the defect. This includes for example, patients with atrial septal defect, aortic valve disease and mitral valve disease. In recent years there have been major advances in the treatment of patients with structural heart disease using minimally invasive, percutaneous treatments. This field continues to evolve quite quickly. This e-book outlines the current situation with respect to minimally invasive treatment of a wide range of structural cardiac defects. Each chapter covers details of a structural defect and outlines various technologies available for treating the condition. Indications for procedures as well as details of the procedures are also provided wherever possible. This e-book should be a useful reference for readers interested in minimally invasive cardiovascular surgery.Transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation in humans: initial clinical experience Circulation 2006a#39;, 114: : 591-596 Grube E, Schuler G, Buellesfeld L, et al.
