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.

In dilated cardiomyopathy, evaluation of the presence and degree of myocardial fibrosis is important for choosing a treatment option such as cardiac resynchronization therapy (12), left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy (26), and surgical ventricular restoration (52).
Somanetics also develops and markets the CorRestore System, which includes a cardiac implant, for use in cardiac repair and reconstruction, including heart surgeries called surgical ventricular restoration, or SVR.
In 2001, NMMC introduced surgical ventricular restoration (SVR), a new surgery for correcting the enlarged, poor functioning left ventricle common in congestive heart failure patients.
The innovative procedure, called surgical ventricular restoration (SVR), is used to help restore a weakened heart chamber, or ventricle, to its normal shape and function.
Currently, reshaping of the left ventricle requires an invasive procedure known as surgical ventricular restoration (SVR), performed by stopping a beating heart with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass, where significant incisions into the heart muscle are made to excise the scarred, non-functioning ventricular tissue.
The CorRestore System was developed to make Surgical Ventricular Restoration surgery easier for cardiac surgeons and to standardize the operation.
Prior to Revivent[TM], reshaping of the left ventricle required an invasive procedure known as surgical ventricular restoration (SVR), which required stopping the beating heart and supporting it with cardiopulmonary bypass, while significant incisions into the heart muscle are made to excise the scarred, non-functioning (ischemic) ventricular tissue.
