Patients with acute psychotic disorders are often considered as inappropriate candidates for cardiac surgery as well as for other surgical interventions. Post-operative care and patient compliance, which are the main problems associated with such patients, are the most important issues for conventional cardiac surgery. Robot-assisted cardiac surgery may be a new solution in this respect. In this report we aimed to present our acute psychotic patient with serious mitral insufficiency secondary to huge atrial myxoma, treated with robotic cardiac surgery.
