About this book


Assisted Circulation IV is an authoritative review of the progress achieved since the publication of Assisted Circulation III in 1989. The present book highlights the work of well-known experts on indications for assisted circulation, cardiac assist devices as bridges to transplantation, chronic mechanical support, biological energy sources, cardiomyoplasty, extracorporeal oxygenation, and xenotransplantation. Assisted Circulation IV is the latest product of an ongoing series intended to keep readers regularly informed about recent advances in this field. Assisted circulation is now a standard technology in cardiac surgery and, especially, in cardiac transplantation.
