Cardiac recovery has been observed in end-stage heart failure patients with mechanical circulatory support. An intra-aortic ventricular assist device (IntraVAD) is a novel rotary blood pump designed to operate in the ascending aorta behind the aortic valve, working in series with the compromised left ventricle (LV). Such a device requires optimal motion(More)
A mock circulatory loop was constructed to facilitate total artificial heart development. The loop includes many novel features such as a pressure-regulated tank to simulate exercise conditions, controllable systemic and pulmonary vascular resistance to create left-right flow imbalances as seen in postural change and breathing, and a left atrial suction(More)
