Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 235)


Under the heading of circulatory assist devices, we include systems designed for complete or partial cardiac replacement. We exclude agents acting on myocardial contraction and peripheral circulation as well as so-called counter-pulsation procedures using intra-aortic balloons which modify pressure rather than the flow rate.
