surgical ventricular restoration

surgical ventricular restoration

The surgical reshaping of the left ventricle to restore the optimal ventricular elliptical shape, significantly improving the ejection fraction. Surgical ventricular restoration may be use in patients with congestive heart failure.

SVR is best performed using an endoventricular shaping device (e.g., TR3 ISVR System's Mannequin™), which enables cardiac surgeons to simply, efficiently and confidently restore dilated left ventricles to a more normal geometry.
