Movie Info

This television documentary shows a technique aimed at countering the effects of a specific type of congestive heart failure, a condition where the patient's heart grows abnormally large and loses the ability to pump enough blood through the body. A Brazilian doctor, Dr. Randas Batista, came up with the technique of slicing off a piece of the left ventricle so that the heart would actually be smaller and therefore become more efficient. He did so because drug treatment and heart transplants were too expensive for the Brazilians. But could he convince the American medical establishment that this radical process works? The methods are tried on patients using the advanced monitoring systems and science found in England and the U.S. to determine whether they work and, if so, which patients would be the best candidates for success.
