Cardiac MIS


Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, also known as MICS, is heart surgery performed through several small incisions instead of the traditional open-heart surgery that requires a median sternotomy approach. MICS is a beating-heart multi-vessel procedure performed under direct vision through an aterolateral mini-thoracotomy.

Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery is favored by surgeons and patients because of reduced post-operative discomfort, faster healing times and lowered risk of infections or complications. Moreover, minimally invasive heart surgery dramatically improves cosmetic scarring. This procedure makes heart surgery possible for patients who were previously considered to be too at risk for traditional surgery due to age or medical history.

Minimally invasive heart surgery procedures are a safe and broadly applicable technique for performing a wide range of complex heart procedures, including single or multiple heart valve procedures, bypass surgery, and congenital heart repairs.

Minimally invasive heart surgery has been used as an alternative to traditional surgery for the following procedures:
Mitral valve repair & replacement
Aortic valve replacement
Atrial septal defects
Coronary artery bypass

STEMA Medizintechnik GmbH, Germany has been the front-runner in the leading MICS platform offering high quality application-specific precision instrumentation designed especially for exceptional durability & reliability – ideal for minimally invasive procedures

The highly ergonomic instrumentation is crafted optimally from superior stainless steel framework for improved control & balance in a variety of intricate MICS interventions to achieve improved patient outcomes.
Some of the important features of MICS instrumentation includes
  • Specially engineered & proven inline handle optimizing tactile feedback & balance system of instrumentation.
  • Lightweight & stable instrumentation for reduced fatigue.
  • The ergonomic instrumentation line features a broad portfolio of products designed specifically for minimal incision aortic and mitral valve replacement or repair, in addition to other cardiac procedures.
  • Available in a variety of sizes & functions for greater versatility.
  • Smooth surface for easy insertion.
  • Highly responsive MICS instrumentation for trouble-free operation even in a constricted operative field.
