Left ventricular pressure-volume relationships before and after cardiomyoplasty in patients with heart failure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to elucidate whether beneficial effects of cardiomyoplasty (CMP) in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy are the result of a decrease in existing ventricular dilatation or a prevention of further dilatation. METHODS AND RESULTS Combined micromanometer-conductance catheters were used to evaluate left ventricular… (More)
