In 1975 the valencian cardiologist F. Torrent-Guasp described the heart as a Helical Ventricular Myocardial Band (HVMB) in which “The ventricular myocardium is presented when it is unrolled under the form of a single big muscular band that, due to its special disposition, describes two cavities in the intact heart” [1]. It gives a different perspective of the morphology of the heart than the current and it could explain better and most coherently the propagation of the electrical stimulus which activates the shortening of the fibres, the complex deformation movement of the heart and maybe an explanation about understanding the cardiac contraction.
