This paper discusses wireless delivery of power from a distant source to an implanted cardiac device, and it proposes recharging implanted batteries using magnetically coupled resonators. ABSTRACT | Wireless data communication technology has eliminated wired connections for data transfer to portable devices. Wireless power technology offers the possibility(More)
Technological innovation of a smaller, single moving part has an advantage over earlier large pulsatile ventricular assist devices (VADs) prone to mechanical failure. Drivelines limit the potential for extended patient survival durations with newer pumps and act as source for infection, increased morbidity, rehospitalizations, and reduced quality of life.(More)
Right ventricular failure is a significant complication following implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), which increases morbidity and mortality. Consequently, researchers have sought predictors that may identify patients at risk. However, they have lacked sensitivity and/or specificity. This study investigated the use of a decision tree(More)
Left ventricular assist device therapy has radically improved congestive heart failure survival with smaller rotary pumps. The driveline used to power today's left ventricular assist devices, however, continues to be a source of infection, traumatic damage, and rehospitalization. Previous attempts to wirelessly power left ventricular assist devices using(More)
BACKGROUND The use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) may contribute to post-operative complications and organ dysfunction. Off pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG) avoids the use of CPB and hence is proposed to reduce these complications. We present the results of OPCABG in Northern Ireland over ten years. METHODS Data was collected retrospectively(More)
Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) allows operations on the heart in a motionless and bloodless field while reducing cardiac workload and sustaining systemic and coronary perfusion. Failure to wean from CPB remains a significant problem. Results from recent large registry data have shown dramatic improvement in the survival following ventricular assistance for(More)
