A fully magnetically levitated left ventricular assist device - Final report
Attitude to Health
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Among patients with advanced heart failure, a fully magnetically levitated centrifugal-flow left ventricular assist device was associated with less frequent need for pump replacement than an axial-flow device and was superior with respect to survival free of disabling stroke or reoperation to replace or remove a malfunctioning device.
