  • To assess the mechanical unloading properties of a new pneumatic cardiac assist device (60 ml Medos HIA-VAD) and its possible influence on recovery from myocardial stunning we performed a study in 12 anaesthetized sheep. After left thoracotomy measuring transducers were placed and the assist device connected between the left-atrial appendage and the descending thoracic aorta. Global hemodynamics were measured before and after unloading was performed. Myocardial stunning was induced by transient… CONTINUE READING
