Aortic vasculature changes following support with a continuous-flow left ventricular assist device: The role of pulsatility.

Abstract

The past decade of durable mechanical circulatory support has been dominated by continuous-flow (CF) left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). Ongoing clinical experience with these devices has demonstrated a unique adverse event profile compared with pulsatile flow LVADs that is attributed, in part, to narrowing of the pulse pressure with continuous… (More)
