Abstract: Against the background of an increasing number of patients waiting for heart transplantation but a stagnating number of transplant procedures, long-term mechanical circulatory support is gaining major importance. We investigated the outcome of 20 patients (15 men, and 5 women, aged between 15 and 66 years) each supported for more than 100 days between September 1987 and August 1996. The indications for implantation were bridging in 17 patients, myocarditis in 2 patients, and postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock in… Show more

“…1,2 We have implanted the pneumatic HeartMate LVAS in 14 patients since April 1994 and the VE HeartMate LVAS in 28 patients since November 1995. 3 A similar device disorder with the VE HeartMate LVAS was reported by Piccione and colleagues 4 in 1998. They showed, as in this report, that the motor chamber filled with clotted blood.…”

“…We have found that esophageal temperatures more closely reflect spinal cord temperatures than do rectal temperatures. 3 Rectal temperatures are usually higher than esophageal temperatures, sometimes by as much as 0.5°C to 1.2°C, and esophageal temperature differences as small as 0.5°C might result in totally different neurologic outcomes. 2,3 3.…”

“…year by year; namely, it was only 32 days in 1994 but exceeded 100 days in 1996 (122 days) (13), and reached a period as long as 140 days in 1998. Thromboembolism and infection are major complications occurring after implantation of a ventricular assist device, and these complications have not yet decreased to a satisfactory level of incidence, although the incidence may differ between devices.…”
