The Dor procedure, also called an endoventricular circular patch plasty (EVCPP) is performed to restore proper function to a dilated left ventricle of the heart. The heart consists of four chambers: two upper atria and two lower ventricles. During the procedure, your surgeon will suture a stitch that encircles and reshapes the ventricle. This suturing is usually followed by placement of a Dacron patch along the ventricular wall where the stitch has been placed.
