Mechanical circulatory support for advanced heart failure: effect of patient selection on outcome.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Use of wearable left ventricular assist systems (LVAS) in the treatment of advanced heart failure has steadily increased since 1993, when these devices became generally available in Europe. The aim of this study was to identify in an unselected cohort of LVAS recipients those aspects of patient selection that have an impact on postimplant… (More)
