Abstract

Recently the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) has been applied to treatment of profound left ventricular failure (LVF) because of its ability to effectively replace cardiac pump function. For clinical use, the authors have developed a new LVAD system consisting of an air-driven, diaphragm-type pump and an automatic control drive unit. In the research reported in this paper, the authors have evaluated the effect of this LVAD system on profound LVF in chronic animal experiments and studied the recovery process of the failing heart from induced profound LVF using left ventriculography (LVG) as well as conventional hemodynamic parameters.
