[3] Therefore, surgical approaches such as left ventriculotomy, which potentially cause further deterioration of LV function should be avoided if possible.

These post-operative changes have been reported to pulmonary insufficiency, pre- operative hypoxia and ventriculotomy.17,23,24 CMR and radionuclide ventriculography are choice methods for assessment of the ventricular function; also, they are expensive and prolonged in duration.19,25,27
