OBJECTIVES Effects of partial left ventriculectomy (PLV) were studied by analyzing perioperative hemodynamics with measurements of left ventricular (LV) pressure-volume (PV) relationships and thermodilution catheter measurements in the pulmonary artery. METHODS Between July and October 1996, 43 consecutive patients underwent PLV with and without mitral valvuloplasty with a thermodilution catheter and PV loop analysis immediately before and after surgery. Patients were 52+/-13 years and 67… CONTINUE READING
