    LVADs are increasingly being used to support patients with end stage heart failure. As such, the traditional definition of death, the absence of a pulse, requires re-examination as it is no longer clinically relevant. We present two contrasting cases of “death” on LVAD support and...

    The optimal treatment option for end stage heart failure is transplantation; however, the shortage of donor organs necessitates alternative treatment strategies such as mechanical circulatory assistance. Ventricular assist devices (VADs) are employed to support these cases while awaiting cardiac...

    Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are systems for mechanical support for patients with end-stage heart failure. Preoperative, postoperative and comprehensive followup with transthoracic echocardiography has a major role in LVAD patient management. In this paper, we will present briefly the...

    Heart failure mainly caused by ischemic or dilated cardiomyopathy is a life-threatening disorder worldwide. The previous work in cardiac surgery has led to many excellent surgical techniques for treating cardiac diseases, and these procedures are now able to prolong the human lifespan. However,...

    Lumped parameter models have been employed for decades to simulate important hemodynamic couplings between a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and the native circulation. However, these studies seldom consider the pathological descending limb of the Frank-Starling response of the overloaded...
