Heart attack may damage the left ventricle of the heart, changing heart shape and weakening blood pumping. It may also affect valve function. This process can lead to heart failure.
Through ventricular remodeling, the expert surgeons at the Abington Heart and Vascular Institute – Jefferson Health rebuild the heart after a heart attack.
Ventricular remodeling is conducted with the use of a heart-lung machine. Our surgeons use a special model to reshape the heart and restore it to good function.
