VAD therapy 20/20: moving beyond the myopic view of a nascent therapy.
Repository Usage Stats
The past five years have seen remarkable growth in the use of durable, continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) with associated improvements in mortality, quality of life, functionality and end-organ function.
