Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ischemic cardiomyopathy is the leading cause of heart failure. In patients with left ventricular (LV) dilatation, low ejection fraction, and transmural scar in an anteroseptal distribution, surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) is a treatment option. We describe our first experience with the Less Invasive Ventricular Enhancement (LIVE) technique using the Revivent™ system (Bioventrix Inc., San Ramon, CA), in the treatment of a large anteroapical aneurysm.
