Abstract

The repair of atrial septal defects (ASD) is often safely performed as a routine procedure in the young and asymptomatic patient. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and especially the cosmetic result of this repair performed through a limited right anterolateral thoracotomy (RALT), with the complete cannulation and aortic cross-clamping conducted through the same incision.
