Abbott's Latest Heart Pump FDA Approved

from Medgadget

Abbott received FDA approval for its HeartMate 3 left ventricular assist device (LVAD), a pump designed to augment cardiac output in patients with severe heart failure that are waiting for their heart to recover or that are in line for a transplant. Featuring the "Full MagLev," as the technology is called by Abbott, the HeartMate 3 provides a wide passage for blood to flow through and does not create any friction in its mechanics thanks to a levitating self-centering rotor. This results in less shear damage to erythrocytes and thought to reduce changes of stroke and other complications. more
