Ventricular assist device

Ventricular assist device. BestBeat is a ventricular assist device (VAD) that can be implanted, pulsed and totally synchronised to adequately treat patients with severe heart failure and offering a number of significant advantages. In addition to its low weight (560 g) and small volume (100 mm in diameter and 50 mm thick), the characteristics of this VAD make it suitable for use as a transplant bridge for chronic assistance and as a recovery bridge. Surgeons and clinicians are increasingly interested in the latter of the two applications.
Studies have shown that the device supplies an efficacious cardiac assistance, since it not only supports the circulation of the blood, but also optimises and controls the work conditions of the natural ventricle thanks to its action in synchrony with the heart and an original control system. This characteristic makes it particularly suited to chronic assistance and, above all, to use as a recovery bridge since it allows the cardiac muscle to rest completely. Another key characteristic of the device is its adjustable filling pressure, which allows the work pressure of the natural left ventricle to be adjusted and calibrated. This is particularly important when used for recovery of the natural heart. When used in this way, a 'retraining'phase (weaning) of the cardiac muscle is needed during which the work done by the muscle must be progressively increased in a controlled way.
