Abstract

The surgical ventricular restoration is an evolution of treatment of left ventricle aneurysm. The aetioloy of left ventricle aneurysm and the dilated post AMI cardiomiopaty is the same; the difference is in the extension of scarred tissue and in the quality of remote zone. Because in this anatomical situation the geometry of left left ventricle can be deeply affected, it can very difficult to have point of reference as position of apex or papillary mussles. Using a sizer and combine different surgical thecniques allow to rebuilt a ventricle with appropriate volume and shape.
