A friend was just diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. After a complete work-up, it was determined that his left ventrical is enlarged (all other systems of the body were not affected). He has a 25% refraction. He is on the donor heart transplant list. My question is about a procedure called a ventricular wrap (layman's name I'm sure). As of yet, I have not been able to locate information concerning this procedure and its success rate. Would it be possible to provide additional iformation about the ventricular wrap (including its medical procedure name) and any related websites. Thank you very much.
