Abstract: We present a T-shaped transseptal approach for mitral valve surgery that makes adequate exposure possible under challenging anatomic and surgical circumstances, hence eliminating the need for forceful retraction on potentially fragile tissues. Particularly suited for patients with complex mitral pathology, it also facilitates juxta-annular transseptal right atrial anchoring, especially in cases of endocarditic anterior mitral annular destruction.
