Myoplasty just a passive girdle says French group:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Cardiomyoplasty may have no more than a passive girdling effect, say French researchers. Writing in the November issue of Circulation, Dr A Hagege of the Boucicaut Hospital in Paris says cardiomyoplasty - wrapping a flap of back muscle around the heart and linking it to a pacemaker - provides no short term haemodynamic benefits. Follow-up data from 13 patients (average 14 months) indicate that the procedure is effective because the extra muscle limits the progression of ventricular enlargement and further deterioration of ejection fraction.
