Surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) is the therapy of choice for patients with left ventricular dilatation, apical and anterolateral transmural scar, and low ejection fraction. STICH trial did not show that SVR led to improved survival but several observational studies did. However, because of the considerable operative risk, open heart surgery is considered risky in debilitated patients and clinical results are controversial. Alternative less invasive strategies for left ventricular aneurysm repair have been proposed. We present a case of a left ventricular aneurysm repair using the less invasive ventricular enhancement technique (LIVE) with the Revivent TC system (BioVentrix Inc., San Ramon, CA) in a totally surgical approach, instead of a hybrid interventional-surgical one, as previously described.

Abstract

Surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) is the therapy of choice for patients with left ventricular dilatation, apical and anterolateral transmural scar, and low ejection fraction. STICH trial did not show that SVR led to improved survival but several observational studies did. However, because of the considerable operative risk, open heart surgery is considered risky in debilitated patients and clinical results are controversial. Alternative less invasive strategies for left ventricular aneurysm repair have been proposed. We present a case of a left ventricular aneurysm repair using the less invasive ventricular enhancement technique (LIVE) with the Revivent TC system (BioVentrix Inc., San Ramon, CA) in a totally surgical approach, instead of a hybrid interventional-surgical one, as previously described.
