A 65 year old male with mitral regurgitation was scheduled for the mitral valve repair by means of minimally invasive technique. The technique, which requires a 10-cm right parasternal incision, offers minimal discomfort, less postoperative pain, quick functional recovery and excellent cosmetic healing. However, the intraoperative monitoring by the transesophageal eehocardiography was required to evaluate the mitral valve function and to confirm the complete removal of air from the apex of the left ventricle and right upper pulmonary vein due to the small operative field. In addition, the monitoring of the short-axis view of the left ventricle makes it possible to evaluate and to confirm the preload and the left ventricular contractility. We considered that the transesophageal eehocardiography is essential and useful for the minimally invasive mitral valve repair.
