Overall quality of life improves to similar levels after mechanical circulatory support regardless of severity of heart failure before implantation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The severity of pre-implantation heart failure may affect post-implantation health-related quality of life (HRQOL). The purpose of our study was to examine differences in HRQOL from before mechanical circulatory support (MCS) through 1 year after surgery by Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) patient… (More)
