The purpose of this study was to assess the smallest possible body sizes of patients in whom the Cleveland Clinic continuous-flow total artificial heart for adult (CFTAH) and pediatric configurations (P-CFTAH) can fit. One of the most critical dimensions is the vertebra-to-sternum distance at the junction of the right atrium to the inferior vena cava (V–S distance). Our previous CFTAH anatomical fitting study suggested that the CFTAH would fit patients of V–S distance ≥ 7.5 cm and the P-CFTAH… CONTINUE READING
