Abstract

The use of ventricular assist devices has expanded significantly since their approval by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States in 1994. In addition to this, the prevalence of heart failure continues to increase. We aim to provide an overview of perioperative consideratio...read more

HFpEF

HF-pEF is associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and concentric left ventricular hypertrophy and has significant mortality and morbidity. The heterogeneity of the disease has resulted in the failure of any drugs for the treatment of HF-pEF. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

HFrEF

Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HF-rEF) is responsible for high costs and increased rates of hospital admissions along with high mortality and morbidity risks. Only treatment for HF-rEF has been shown to be efficacious compared to HF-pEF which currently has no useful treatment options. Here is the latest research on HF-rEF.

Artificial Heart & Ventricular Assist Devices

Total artificial hearts (TAH) and ventricular assist devices (VADs) provide cardiac support for patients with end-stage heart disease and have significantly improved the survival of these patients. Discover the latest research on Artificial Heart and Ventricular Assist Devices here.

Fluid Dynamics: Engineering Devices

Physiological fluid dynamics can assist in understanding the pathological mechanisms. Understanding of cardiovascular diseases, hemodynamics and the circulatory system can assist in designing engineering devices as potential therapeutic strategies. Here is the latest research on fluid dynamics and engineering devices.
