Many studies on cardiac assist devices using skeletal muscle ventricle (SMV) require preconditioning for 6-9 weeks as a countermeasure to prevent skeletal muscle fatigue. Therefore this method does not seem to be indicated in cases of acute heart failure. However we performed experiments to develop Alternate-Drive Twin SMVs as a cardiac assist device… CONTINUE READING
