The case described here is the first reported case of successful isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) via a right anterior thoracotomy (RAT) in a patient

with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). The most common reported complication in patients with OI undergoing AVR

 

or other cardiac surgery is bleeding and sternal complications. By using a RAT approach, it was possible to replace the aortic valve without major bleeding, transfusion, or sternal complications.
