Background The feasibility, safety and advantages of minimally invasive or robotic repair of atrial septal defect (ASD) in adults were reported previously. However, there is limited data for the application of these systems in paediatric patients. Although current robotic systems still have large instruments for surgical repair in children, some appropriate patients may benefit from this technology.
