Hemodynamic, echocardiographic, and exercise-related effects of the heartware left ventricular assist device in advanced heart failure
Congestive Heart Failure, 07/17/2012
McDiarmid A et al. – There were no significant changes in a visual grade of right ventricular function. After up to 1 year of support, the HVAD system results in significant benefits in overall heart failure status, with improved hemodynamics and exercise capacity. This occurs in the absence of marked changes in left ventricular size or right ventricular function.
