Abstract
The fish-mouth incision of the left ventricular apex is the established incision to access and close apical ventricular septum defect. A long diagonal branch may render this incision dangerous. In such a case, we performed a more anterior incision on the left ventricle, and fashioned a patch to exclude the whole defective area.
