Progress in the development of the DexAide right ventricular assist device.

Abstract

The DexAide right ventricular assist device (RVAD) is an implantable centrifugal pump modified from the CorAide left ventricular assist device. As previously published, in vitro performance testing of the DexAide RVAD has met design criteria, and the nominal operating condition of 4 l/min and 20 mm Hg pressure rise was achieved at 2,000 rpm, with a power… (More)
