Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We describe a patient successfully treated with simultaneous ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair and LV restoration procedure patch after developing both a VSD and LV dyskinesia following acute myocardial infarction. This procedure is technically challenging and represents a novel technique for the management of this clinical problem.
