LV Reconstruction Animation

This is a 3 dimensional image of an MRI before and after LV reconstruction. Notice the image on the left preoperatively. The heart is much larger in size and has a large area of dyskinesia (scar tissue) causing the heart to contract sluggishly. On the right following surgery, the heart is smaller in size and contracts much more vigorously especially where the scar has been removed.
