Biventricular support with the Jarvik 2000 ventricular assist device in a calf model of pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract

The Jarvik 2000 ventricular assist device (VAD) is clinically efficacious for treating end-stage left ventricular failure. Because simultaneous right ventricular support is also occasionally necessary, we developed a biventricular Jarvik 2000 technique and tested it in a calf model. One VAD was implanted in the left ventricle with outflow-graft anastomosis… (More)
