Despite recent advances in left ventricular assist device and total artificial heart technologies, these devices are still so large that they pose a significant problem in small patients with refractory heart failure. Excising the left ventricle while preserving the right ventricle--and then replacing the left ventricle with a mechanical pump--has been proposed as an alternative approach to this problem. We conducted a pilot study to evaluate possible surgical techniques and the hemodynamic effects of right ventricle-sparing left ventricular resection and replacement with a continuous-flow rotary blood pump in a healthy bovine model.
