Myocardial revascularization in patients with left ventricular failure (ejection fraction < 30%) offers survival comparable to heart transplantation. The functional outcome, however, has yet to be determined. In order to assess the clinical results in patients with LVEF < 30% undergoing coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG), 101 consecutive patients operated between 1/91 and 1/97 were reviewed retrospectively.

Abstract

Myocardial revascularization in patients with left ventricular failure (ejection fraction < 30%) offers survival comparable to heart transplantation. The functional outcome, however, has yet to be determined. In order to assess the clinical results in patients with LVEF < 30% undergoing coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG), 101 consecutive patients operated between 1/91 and 1/97 were reviewed retrospectively.
