Although dynamic cardiomyoplasty may promote clinical amelioration and mild improvement in left ventricular function in selected patients, whether cardiac reverse remodeling occurs after the procedure is not clear. We did not find histologic differences among right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy specimens taken before and after the surgery at 3 time periods. This result suggests that the procedure has no effect on the microscopic structure of the right ventricular myocardium. However, because reverse remodeling does not necessarily occur concomitantly in both ventricles, our conclusion cannot be extrapolated to the left ventricular chamber.
