Abstract

Although sarcoidosis may involve the myocardium, there is little available information on its treatment, especially in cases requiring surgery, such as left ventricular restoration or mitral valve repair. This report presents two surgical cases with cardiac sarcoidosis treated by left ventricular restoration and mitral valve repair for a ventricular aneurysm and dilated cardiomyopathy with mitral regurgitation.
