Advanced heart failure: feasibility study of long-term continuous axial flow pump support.

Abstract:

AIMS: A lack of donor hearts has stimulated interest in using blood pumps to treat severe heart failure. We tested the hypothesis that a new continuous flow circulatory assist device could be employed safely to relieve symptoms of heart failure and evaluated the potential to prolong life.
