The subaortic membrane is a rare pathological entity, with a 1% to 2% occurrence in young adults. Typically it consists of a thin fibrous membrane in the left outflow tract leading to symptoms such as dyspnea. Transesophageal echocardiography is the gold standard imaging for diagnosis and detection of associated cardiac defects. The classic approach consists of median sternotomy to proceed to membrane resection and septal myectomy. We present 2 case of resection by right anterior minithoracotomy.
