Chronic left ventricular assist in calves with a pulsatile impeller pump.

Abstract

The author's impeller pump was further evaluated as a left ventricular assist device in calves. The longest survival was achieved in the last three calves for more than 6 weeks (62, 54, 46 days, respectively). The hemochemical measurements showed that no blood damage and no organ dysfunction occurred during the experiments. Termination of the experiments… (More)
