A Fully Magnetically Levitated Circulatory Pump for Advanced Heart Failure.


BACKGROUND Continuous-flow left ventricular assist systems increase the rate of survival among patients with advanced heart failure but are associated with the development of pump thrombosis. We investigated the effects of a new magnetically levitated centrifugal continuous-flow pump that was engineered to avert thrombosis. METHODS We randomly assigned… (More)
