Robotic repair of the ventricular septal defect was performed mainly for perimembranous type via right thorax approach. Minimally invasive strategies for doubly committed juxta-arterial ventricular septal defect were limited. Here, for the first time, we successfully repaired a doubly committed juxta-arterial ventricular septal defect with Da Vinci robotic system via left thorax approach. The technique could provide excellent exposure of surgical field and accurate repair, with the advantage of reducing trauma and shortening the overall length of stay.
