Contemporary durable mechanical circulatory support devices, based on axial or centrifugal continuous blood flow and most aptly referred to as left ventricular assist systems, have resulted in a paradigm shift from crisis support to long-term performance-based goals in patients with advanced heart failure. Progress in engineering has occurred by miniaturization of left ventricular assist systems, reduction in moving parts and in some cases, frictionless pumps that do not rely on mechanical… CONTINUE READING
