OBJECTIVES While partial left ventriculectomy (PLV) may improve functional status, the duration and determinants of this improvement are poorly known. This study sought to assess the relationship between left ventricular (LV) shape and function and functional status in late survivors after PLV for non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). METHODS We assessed the relations between LV shape and function and functional status in 17 consecutive patients who survived >12 months after PLV for non… CONTINUE READING
