Abstract

The second annual IMACS registry report includes over 14, 000 patients from 35 countries. Survival, adverse events, and an updated risk model is presented. Continuous flow pumps continue to dominate the world's experience. One and Two-year survival remains at 80% and 70%. Congenital heart disease and biventricular support are the most dominant risk factors. The database is poised for major novel analyses.
