Abstract

Cardiac support devices (CSD) offer a new therapeutic alternative to patients with end-stage refractory heart failure and severe left ventricle (LV) dilatation. Passive mechanical constraint has been shown to reduce LV dilatation as well as to improve LV function and patient symptoms. Using a new echocardiographic technique to evaluate myocardial strain from bidimensional acquisitions, we describe the case of a patient with significant improvement in global and regional LV functions, as well as LV dyssynchrony following CSD implantation. © 2005 The European Society of Cardiology.
