OBJECTIVES: This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of revascularization on survival in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) due to ischemic left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction based on the presence of myocardial viability (MV). BACKGROUND: There are insufficient data regarding the survival benefit of revascularization in patients with CHF due to ischemic LV systolic dysfunction. METHODS:: Follow-up was obtained in 87 consecutive patients with CHF due to ischemic LV systolic dysfunction (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class II-IV; LV ejection fraction
