Description

After decades of laboratory investigations mechanical circulatory support for the failing heart has entered the clinical arena.

After decades of laboratory investigations mechanical circulatory support for the failing heart has entered the clinical arena. Today, a growing number of patients with progressive myocardial failure awaiting cardiac transplantation is successfully bridged to transplantation with ventricular assist.

Matthias Loebe In 76 patients the device could be explanted after myocardial recovery.

Since 1994 the blood-contacting surfaces of the device system have been heparin-coated. In 76 patients the device could be explanted after myocardial recovery. In 72 patients the aim of implantation was permanent support.

Michael Dandel, Roland Hetzer. Published in Heart, lung and vessels 2015. Freedom from heart transplantation and VAD support for 15 years following VAD removal is possible even if recovery is incomplete and the underlying cause for ventricular assist device implantation was a chronic form of cardiomyopathy. Echocardiography and rightheart catheterization are necessary to assess cardiac recovery.

Mechanical circulatory support is successfully applied to patients with low cardiac output. The aim is either to wean the patients from circulatory support after myocardial recovery or to bridge the patients to transplantation. With the first successful implantation of the MEDOS-System in a pediatric patient in 1995, a new device for ventricular assistance in pediatric and adult patients was introduced. 1,2 Design and pump characteristics have been previously described.

After decades of laboratory investigations mechanical circulatory support for the failing heart has entered the clinical arena. Today, a growing number of patients with progressive myocardial failure awaiting cardiac transplantation is successfully bridged to transplantation with ventricular assist devices. The proceedings of the "Mechanical Circulatory Support"-meeting, held in Berlin, October 21-22, 1995, present new aspects of mechanical circulatory support, recent experience with MCS in newborns and children using specially developed small devices, and the results of long-term mechanical assistance. The ability of the myocardium to recover under pressure de-loading and reduced workload is discussed. All these topics open up new perspectives for the use of mechanical circulatory support, not only as a bridge to transplantation, but also as a definitive approach for treating patients with end-stage heart failure. Some of these concepts may even provide real alternatives to heart transplantation, these being sorely needed in light of the severe donor organ shortage.
