Ventricular Remodeling Surgery (SVR)

Posted: April 24, 2018 at 1:43 am

Surgical Ventricular Reconstruction (SVR) Surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) reduces the size of a patient’s failing, enlarged heart to ensure that blood is pumped out of the heart, and through the body efficiently enough to allow them to participate in a full, active life. Continue reading

What Is the Ejection Fraction? – Verywell Health

Posted: at 1:43 am

The ejection fraction is a measurement doctors very commonly use to assess how well the heart is able to pump blood. Specifically, the ejection fraction is the proportion of blood that is pumped from the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber of the heart) with each heart beat. Typically, the left ventricle ejects 55% or more of its blood volume with each beat, so a “normal” ejection fraction is 55% (0.55) or higher Continue reading
