Jatene correction of the ventricular geometry in postinfarction left ventricular aneurysm. Results of 62 operations.


Jatene correction of left ventricular aneurysm was performed on 62 patients (including 11 emergency operations) with mean age 60 years, 80% of them in NYHA class 3-4, with mean left ventricular ejection fraction c. 30%and mean left ventricular end-diastolic pressure c. 24 mm. Concomitant bypass grafting was performed in 58 cases (mean grafts per patient 3.7… (More)
