OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the impact of continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) on functional capacity and heart failure-related quality of life. BACKGROUND Newer continuous-flow LVAD are smaller and quieter than pulsatile-flow LVADs. METHODS Data from advanced heart failure patients enrolled in the HeartMate II LVAD (Thoratec Corporation, Pleasanton, California) bridge to transplantation (BTT) (n = 281) and destination therapy (DT) (n = 374) trials were… CONTINUE READING
