Abstract

Non-implantable ventricular assist device plays a major role in emergent or urgent situation where a patient has acutely decompensating hemodynamics. One of its major disadvantages is that the patient needs to be bed-bound after insertion. We have developed a surgical technique that allows ambulatory management of the patients who received non-implantable device with CentriMag.
