Title:
An in‐silico twin for epicardial augmentation of the failing heart 
Abstract:
Advances in ventricular assist device (VAD) technology for the treatment of end- stage congestive heart failure (CHF) are needed to cope with the increasing numbers of patients that cannot be provided with donor hearts for transplantation. We develop and investigate a novel extravascular VAD technology that provides biventricular, epicardial pressure support for the failing heart. This novel VAD concept avoids blood contact that is accompanied with typical complications such as coagula- tion and...    »
