PMID:  1392227     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The technique for implanting the HeartMate, an intraabdominally placed, pulsatile left ventricular assist device, is described. This device, which has been developed for potential use in patients requiring permanent left ventricular assistance, is currently undergoing clinical investigation in patients requiring temporary support as they await cardiac transplantation. This clinical experience has demonstrated device safety and efficacy, even for patients requiring extended periods of support.
