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.

Background: Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) has been performed to treat left ventricular (LV) aneurysm.
Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) with different techniques has been performed to treat LV aneurysm.[sup][5],[6],[7],[8],[9] In 1985, Dor introduced an original surgical technique, endoventricular circular patch plasty repair (the Dor procedure), to improve geometric reconstruction with respect to standard linear repair in LV aneurysm.[sup][6],[10] A marked improvement in LV volume and pump function early after SVR with the Dor procedure has been reported in patients with postinfarction LV anterior aneurysm.[sup][11] However, there is limited detailed analysis of changes in LV shape at the apical level.
