Cardiac support is a new and promising therapy for refractory heart failure. Only a few previous publications focused on technical implantation of such device. We have developed a new technique that facilitates a consistent and safe implant when the procedure is done without extra-corporeal...
Objectives: To summarise the primary efficacy and safety results from the first international clinical trial with the VentrAssist™ left ventricular assist device and to provide an update on the VentrAssist™ Clinical Development Plan. Methods: The first prospective, single-arm, multicentre...
Objective: The approval of a heart valve for the European market takes place in accordance with European and international standards. A new version of the EN Standards was published in June 2006, which responded to different technical innovations in the area of heart valve technology. This work...
Purpose: We developed a novel surgical sealant, a viscous diisocyanated prepolymer, applicable to arterial hemostasis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate hemostatic effect of this surgical sealant under heparinized conditions. Methods: The effectiveness of this sealant was verified by...
SummaryNon-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is a disease characterised by the presence of vegetations on cardiac valves, which consist of fibrin and platelet aggregates and devoid of inflammation or bacteria. NBTE has increasingly been recognised as a condition associated with numerous...
Background: The 6-min walking test (6MWT) is a simple test, which does not require expensive equipment or advanced training. It has been used in heart failure patients to assess exercise tolerance, the effects of therapy and prognosis. Accordingly, post-surgical cardiac rehabilitation may be a...
Background: Neutrophil elastase plays an important role in ischemia–reperfusion injury. We hypothesized that the addition of sivelestat, a specific neutrophil elastase inhibitor, to the organ flushing solution would decrease reperfusion injury in a rat single left-lung transplant model. Methods:...
