  • BACKGROUND Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in childhood has a considerable morbidity and mortality and high incidence of heart transplantation. Pulmonary artery banding (PAB) has been proposed in patients with corrected transposition of the great arteries to retrain the sub-pulmonic left ventricle (LV) and to improve a failing sub-aortic right ventricle. We evaluated the short-term and medium-term effects of PAB in young patients with LVDCM. METHODS A retrospective single-center observational… CONTINUE READING

    INTERVENTIONAL CLINICAL TRIAL
    The purpose of this study is to: 1) Remodel and restore left ventricular geometry and function. 2) Avoid the need for mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and/or cardiac… Expand
