Mechanical ventricular support devices in heart failure treatment

Category: From Heart Failure to Heart Transplantation

Overview

The increasing prevalence of heart failure, on the one hand, and the stagnating or declining number of suitable heart donors on the other, has led to an effort to substitute the heart function with an artificial pump. During recent decades, medical and technological progress has allowed the construction of devices that support or substitute the pumping function of the heart. The authors submit a current overview of mechanical cardiac support devices and their role in the treatment of heart failure, as well as in the heart transplant programme.
