Partial left ventriculectomy combined with transmyocardial laser revascularization

Abstract We report the use of transmyocardial laser revascularization in combination with partial left ventriculectomy for treatment of end-stage dilated ischemic cardiomyopathy. The disappearance of the reversible perfusion defects in the treated left ventricular territories and improvement of the systolic function led us to believe that the simultaneous use of these two techniques was complementary in our patient.
