BACKGROUND Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is an effective treatment for ischemic cardiomyopathy. However, patients with ventricular enlargement are known to have inferior outcomes. We assessed whether surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) with CABG (SVR + CABG) leads to improved outcomes versus CABG alone for patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and ventricular enlargement. METHODS We conducted a case-control study comparing patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and ejection… CONTINUE READING
