OBJECTIVES Recent advances in technology and improved patient management have enabled the use of mechanical circulatory support for unexpected long-term periods. Improved long-term outcomes may facilitate the use of device therapy as an alternative to heart transplantation. However, there are scarce data about the long-term outcomes of continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices. This study sought to evaluate the long-term outcomes in patients receiving continuous-flow left ventricular… CONTINUE READING
