Abstract
CIRCULATORY ASSIST DEVICES ARE NEEDED FOR IMMEDIATE TEMPORARY TREATMENT OF ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION AND FOR SOME POSTCARDIOTOMY PATIENTS. SINCE MORE THAN 30 YEARS AGO, THE EFFORTS OF A NUMBER OF RESEACHERS AND CLINICIANS HAVE RESULTED IN THE NOW WIDELY USED COUNTERPULSATION INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMPING (IABP), WHICH INCREASES MYOCARDIAL OXYGEN UPTAKE AND CORONARY PERFUSION, AND REDUCES LOAD ON THE HEART AND ITS OXYGEN DEMAND. IN 1973 A PNEUMATICALLY-OPERATED MECHANICAL AUXILIARY VENTRICLE (MAV), WHICH OPERATES ON THE SAME PRINCIPLE AS AN IABP, WAS IMPLANTED INTO THE AORTA OF A PATIENT DURING CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS, AND IT SUSTAINED HIM FOR 96 DAYS. SINCE 1985, PNEUMATIC ARTIFICIAL VENTRICLES HAVE BEEN USED AS TEMPORARY ASSIST AND REPLACEMENT DEVICES PRIOR TO TRANSPLANTATION, AND A WEARABLE, BATTERY-OPERATED DRIVER HAS RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED THAT CAN POWER A PNEUMATIC VAD OR TAH OF AMBULATORY PATIENTS. THE GOAL OF THE PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A PROTOTYPE OF A PORTABLE INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMPING MACHINE FOR INTRA- AND INTER-HOSPITAL AND VEHICULAR PATIETNT TRANSPORT.
