Helical Structure of the Ventricular Myocardium. A Narrative Review of
Introduction. The concept of ventricular anatomy as a
single muscular band was initially described by Francisco Torrent-Guasp
in 1972 1 and since then, there have been multiple
novel contributions to the understanding of the morphology and function
of the heart. To date, this concept has been supported and denied by
multiple groups of professionals reflecting both the enthusiasm and
resistance to the new concept of the single muscle band model.
Currently, the single muscular band is the model that meets all the
requirements to explain the performance of cardiac mechanics, and its
distinctive feature to determine the characteristics of the structure.
