Abstract

Techniques for implantation of the Hemopump, an intraarterial, axial-flow circulatory assist device, are described. The Hemopump, which is currently undergoing clinical investigation, has been used successfully to treat patients experiencing profound left ventricular failure in a variety of clinical situations, including postcardiotomy shock, acute myocardial infarction, cardiac allograft rejection, and cardiac allograft failure.
