The ­authors ­describe a ­simple ­method to per­form ­left ven­tric­ular biop­sies ­during ­open ­heart sur­gery. An auto­matic gun ­shaped ­device is ­used by one ­hand of the sur­geon: the ­sample is ­obtained in a few sec­onds, at any ­time of the sur­gical pro­ce­dure. It con­sists of a trans­mural ­piece of ­tissue, aver­aging 18 mm3 in quan­tity. The ­device has ­been ­used in 20 ­patients who under­went cor­o­nary ­artery revas­cu­lar­iza­tion. All the biop­sies ­were suc­cessful. No com­pli­ca­tions ­occurred.
