Ventricular Restraint Implants

Definition : Implantable cardiac devices designed to restrain the heart ventricles, preventing further enlargement. These devices may use different technologies, including implantable mesh (made of fabric or metal), adjustable bands to be wrapped around the ventricles, and two pads that rest opposite each other against the outside of the left ventricular walls that are held in place by a flexible cord. Ventricular restraints are implanted during open or minimally invasive surgical procedures. They are intended to slow or stop the cascade effect in which further enlargement occurs to compensate for reduced pumping efficiency, worsening the heart function.
