Recent developments in ventricular assist devices have been quite remarkable. Rapid advances have been made particularly in terms of smaller size and more durable material and design. As a result, ventricular assist devices are increasingly being implanted in children and they are increasingly being used as a means of destination therapy for elderly patients with heart failure who are not eligible for heart transplantation. New issues have arisen as a result of these expanded indications. This book focuses on recent advances in ventricular assist devices itself and related issues.

Abstract

Recent developments in ventricular assist devices have been quite remarkable. Rapid advances have been made particularly in terms of smaller size and more durable material and design. As a result, ventricular assist devices are increasingly being implanted in children and they are increasingly being used as a means of destination therapy for elderly patients with heart failure who are not eligible for heart transplantation. New issues have arisen as a result of these expanded indications. This book focuses on recent advances in ventricular assist devices itself and related issues.
