A ventricular assist device (VAD) has been developed for clinical use at The Pennsylvania State University that can be inserted with standard surgical technique, is capable of completely supporting either the systemic or pulmonary circulation, and does not require anticoagulation. Since 1976, this device has been used in 29 patients following cardiac surgical procedures who were not able to be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with conventional techniques. From 1976 through 1979, we used… CONTINUE READING
