We report non transplant surgical procedure (preserving autologous heart operation) for the patients with dilated cardiomyopathy( DCM), clinical outcomes, and the factor of predict prognosis. Since May 2000, 258 patients received surgical procedure for 11 years. We performed mitral surgery (plasty or replacement) for the patients with more than mild mitral regurgitation (MR). We performed papirally muscule plication since 2005, and we performed 2nd chordal cutting since 2008, for the patients with MR due to mitral tethering. The surgical left ventricular reconstruction( SVR) was performed for the patients with dilated left ventricular. We use spackle tracking echocardiography to decide the type of SVR since 2008. Hospital death was 18.2%, and late cardiac death was 27.5%.Almost the cause of death was congestive heart failure and ventricular arrhythmia. Five years survival was 58%, 10 years survival was 39%. Preoperative condition, emergent operation, inotropic support, intra aortic balloon pumping(IABP),affect the prognosis. But left ventricular size did not affect it. Surgical treatment for the patient with DCM should be performed with stable preoperative condition.
