Abstract

In the mid 1980s, two highly innovative and entirely new approaches to the surgical treatment of left ventricular aneurysms were introduced almost simultaneously and completely independently by Dr Adib Jatene in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Dr Vincent Dor, then at the University of Nice, France and now at the Centre Cardio-Thoracique de Monaco. The similarities between these two approaches to the repair of left ventricular aneurysms and their close temporal evolution have caused confusion regarding their differences and the precise surgical technique of each approach. It is the purpose of this article to clarify the similarities and differences between these two techniques.
