Fluoroscopic determination of latissimus dorsi muscle shortening fraction after dynamic cardiomyoplasty.

Abstract

Optimization of the skeletal muscle contraction during cardiac assist is important to achieve maximal cardiac assist and yet avoid overstimulation that may injure skeletal muscle. Dynamic cardiomyoplasty suffers from lack of an objective, reproducible, and accurate technique to measure skeletal muscle shortening fraction after wrap and training of the… (More)
