BACKGROUND Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) is classically performed in heart failure patients with anteroseptal infarction. It is unknown how the extent of septal myocardial infarction (SMI) affects prognosis. We reviewed our experience to evaluate the impact of the extent of SMI on outcomes after SVR. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed SVR patients from January 2002 to December 2005. Patients were stratified based on the extent of SMI assessed by magnetic resonance imaging and… Expand
Predictors of adverse events after surgical ventricular restoration for advanced ischaemic cardiomyopathy.
Despite advanced cardiomyopathy, SVR determines left ventricular volume reduction and improved systolic function, suggesting a possible rationale for wider indications for combined correction of 2+ mitral regurgitation and undersizing of the mitral annulus. Expand
Current status of surgical ventricular restoration for ischemic cardiomyopathy.
The historical background and observational data that established a role for surgical ventricular restoration are reviewed, and it is argued that the limitations are such that the study cannot provide any reliable conclusion on the role of SVR. Expand
Surgical treatment of advanced heart failure: alternatives to heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory assist devices.
Although orthotopic heart transplantation is the gold standard for definitive surgical treatment of end-stage heart failure, other operative therapies exist for dealing with severe systolic leftExpand
Long-Term Results of Complex Left Ventricular Reconstruction Surgery
Left ventricular reconstruction is advocated as a surgical option for patients with severe congestive heart failure. Despite initial enthusiasm for this procedure, reports of long-term results areExpand
Long-term results of complex left ventricular reconstruction surgery: case report.
A particularly gratifying case of left ventricular reconstruction in a 43-year-old man, who continues to have excellentLeft ventricular function 10 years postoperatively, suggests this approach may be a reasonable alternative to cardiac transplantation in patients who lack other treatment options.

Outcome of left ventricular aneurysmectomy with patch repair in patients with severely depressed pump function.
The improvement in ejection fraction was maintained, as well as the reduction in inducible and spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias, after left ventricular aneurysm resection in patients with severely depressed pump function. Expand
Left ventricular reconstruction: Early and late results.
Using wall thinning as a criterion for patient selection, left ventricular reconstruction can be performed with low operative mortality, provides good control of symptoms, excellent long-term survival, and freedom from sudden death. Expand
Intermediate survival and predictors of death after surgical ventricular restoration.
This study examined the effects of Dor procedure on long-term survival in patients with previous transmural anterior myocardial infarction who were referred to a single experienced center for leftExpand
Surgical ventricular restoration for advanced congestive heart failure: should pulmonary hypertension be a contraindication?
Surgical ventricular restoration significantly improved cardiac function and pulmonary pressures for PHTN patients and both groups had similar cardiac function postoperatively. Expand
Surgical ventricular remodeling for patients with clinically advanced congestive heart failure and severe left ventricular dysfunction.
Results indicate that SVR improves left ventricular function and functional status for patients with advanced congestive heart failure and a pre-operative ejection fraction < or =20%. Expand
Surgical ventricular remodeling for multiterritory myocardial infarction: defining a new patient population.
Surgical ventricular remodeling improves cardiac function and New York Heart Association functional status in patients with multiterritory myocardial infarction and proposes a new patient population who may benefit from this procedure. Expand
Septal anterior ventricular exclusion operation (Pacopexy) for ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy: treat form not disease.
The SAVE or Pacopexy technique is easy to reshape the dilated left ventricle from spherical to ellipsoid form after the LVR, and the resultant improved configuration may contribute to the overall results for patients with ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. Expand
Efficacy of endoventricular patch plasty in large postinfarction akinetic scar and severe left ventricular dysfunction: comparison with a series of large dyskinetic scars.
Endoventricular circular patch plasty associated with coronary grafting and cryotherapy, when indicated, provides surviving patients with significant improvement in cardiac function and can be considered as an alternative to heart transplantation in patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction. Expand
Surgical ventricular restoration in patients with postinfarction coronary artery disease: effectiveness on spontaneous and inducible ventricular tachycardia.
The favorable electrical success rate and low mortality are not linked to one aspect of the surgical procedure, but to an integrated approach that relieves ischemia (coronary bypass graft), and reduces left ventricular volumes (SVR) to improve pump function, and nonguided endocardiectomy plus cryoablation, to interrupt functional reentry circuits.

Surgical ventricular restoration in the treatment of congestive heart failure due to post-infarction ventricular dilation.
Surgical ventricular restoration improves ventricular function and is highly effective therapy in the treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy with excellent five-year outcome. Expand
