Diastolic filling reserve preservation using a semispherical dacron patch for repair of anteroapical left ventricular aneurysm


Hartmann, Rebecca; Auf der Maur, Christoph; Toggweiler, Stefan; Brunner, Christian; Jamshidi, Peiman; Mueller, Xavier; Tavakoli, Reza (2016). Diastolic filling reserve preservation using a semispherical dacron patch for repair of anteroapical left ventricular aneurysm. Annals of Thoracic Surgery, 102(1):73-75.

Abstract

In postinfarction left ventricular aneurysm, abnormal geometry and desynchronized wall motion may cause a highly inefficient pump function. The traditional endoventricular patch plasty according to the Dor technique might result in a truncated and restrictive left ventricular cavity in small adults. We report a modified technique of left ventricular anteroapical aneurysm repair by using a semispherical reshaping patch to restore the left ventricular geometry.
