Abstract

Patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction and symptomatic heart failure caused by ischemic or valvular heart disease face a high morbidity and mortality risk from cardiac surgery. We present data showing that excellent surgical outcome can be achieved after pre-treatment of such patients with carvedilol.
