Abstract: The increasing global prevalence of congestive heart failure is a major healthcare concern, accounting for a high morbidity rate worldwide. In particular, isolated right heart dysfunction after cardiotomy has a poor prognosis and is associated with a high mortality rate. The occurrence of postoperative right heart failure may develop in more than 40% of patients undergoing implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and cardiac transplantation. To date, mechanical cardiac assistance in the form of … Show more

“…[85][86][87] Mechanical circulatory assist devices can be used with the inflow cannula in the RA or RV and out to the pulmonary artery or via venous-venous bypass if extracorporeal oxygenation is to be given. Such RV assist devices (RVAD) work at 4 L/min at 40 mmHg pulmonary pressure, 88 and include extracorporeal, paracorporeal, and implantable devices. Extracorporeal devices include the Abiomed BVS 5000, CentriMag systems.…”

“…90 The Thoratec PVAD (percutaneous VAD) has 5-6.5 L/min of pulsatile flow and is a pneumatic device. 88 The Thoratec IVAD (implantable VAD) can provide intermediate or longterm support. It is a pneumatic pump that can provide pulsatile flow between 4 and 7 L/min.…”

“…It is a pulsatile device that has been used for left, right and biventricular intermediate-to long-term support [29]. Before the introduction of continuous-flow devices, Farrar and associates conducted a multi-center study, including 213 patients receiving Thoratec paracorporeal ventricular assist device as bridge to transplant.…”

“…The Abiomed BVS 5000 (Abiomed, Inc., Danvers, MA) is a pulsatile device that is pneumatically driven and was the first FDA-approved device for postcardiotomy RV failure [29]. Morgan et al reported its use in 30 patients as RVADs, and of those, 21 (70%) survived support with nine recovery, five as bridge-to-bridge and one received a transplant [30].…”

“…1,2 Many approaches to engineer new and healthy tissue for the replacement of injured tissue or defective organs have been developed, 3-6 experimentally in small animal models with promising clinical potential. 7,8 However, vascularization remains one of the great challenges for tissue engineering limiting its potential to grow tissues of clinically relevant size.…”
