Surgical ventricular restoration is a surgical procedure developed in an attempt to reverse the negative remodeling that occurs following myocardial infarction. The goal of the procedure is to: 1) reduce the size and restore the normal elliptical shape of the heart; 2) perform a complete myocardial revascularization; and 3) repair any mitral insufficiency. This article will review the surgical procedure and describe outcomes achieved with surgical ventricular restoration.
