Abstract

A multidisciplinary effort has been underway at Penn State University’s Hershey Medical Center and University Park campus to build a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) which will be suitable for patients requiring long-term circulatory support. Substantial progress has been achieved by the successful testing of a sealed, wireless LVAD system in vitro and in vivo.
