Keyhole cardiac surgery saves $2000 per patient

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

New trial data on Heartport's port-access minimally invasive cardiac surgery system show that it saves an average of $2000 per patient, despite the cost of the technology, by shortening hospital stays and reducing the risks of surgical complications. The trial answers questions raised in previous studies by matching patients in the port-access group with those undergoing traditional open-chest surgery, says a leading surgeon at the New York University Medical Center where the trial was carried out.
