Publicada el Wednesday, 5 Nov 2014
Within the last two decades the field of mechanical circulatory support has seen dramatic growth in the use of rotary blood pumps in all possible forms and applications. At present, sophisticated technology implemented in rotary blood pumps dominates nearly all clinical applications of mechanical circulatory support. Rotary blood pumps are used for short-term support in ECMO-circuits or as assist devices in "Bridge to decision" procedures as well as for long-term support as "Bridge to transplantation" or "Destination therapy". Each rotary blood pump application is considered "State of the Art" in the treatment of patients with acute or chronic cardio-respiratory failure.
