From 1984 to 2000, 950 Left Ventricular ischemic asynergy (dyskinetic or akinetic) were operated using the endoventricular circular patch plasty technique. This allows to exclude all asynergic areas of the left ventricular wall and reshape the remaining wall. Both morphology and hemodynamic of left ventricle, are improved. Hospital mortality was below 7%. Life expectancy at 10 years reaches 80% if pre-operative L.V.E.F. is above 30%, and end systolic volume index (E.S.V.I.) below 90[emsp4 ]ml, and 60% in L.V.E.F. is below 30% and E.S.V.I. above 90[emsp4 ]ml. L.V.R. by endoventricular plasty has to be considered in the treatment of ischemic congestive heart failure.
