Abstract

Pulmonary fibroelastomas are a rare primary cardiac tumor with less than 50 cases reported in the literature to date. We performed a minimally invasive valve-sparing tumor resection through a left anterior mini-incision (LAMI). The procedure was performed without cardiac arrest or aortic cross clamp, expediting postoperative recovery and allowing for an uncomplicated discharge on postoperative day 5. LAMI is a safe and reliable alternative to median sternotomy for patients requiring interventions on the right ventricular outflow tract and main pulmonary artery, including pulmonary fibroelastoma resection and pulmonary valve replacement when needed.
