Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) is an accepted treatment option for patients with end-stage congestive heart failure (CHF). A minority of these patients will require the placement of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD). We report our operative technique for placement of an LVAD following SVR.
