Abstract: front page image
(EN)An intravascular bi-directional pump is disclosed which is adapted to be located in the upper aorta, whereby it can assist the left ventricle to eject in the forward direction during systole, so as to off-load the heart, and also pump an adequate amount in the reverse direction, during diastole, to secure coronary flow.
(FR)Pompe intravasculaire bidirectionnelle adaptée pour être logée dans la partie supérieure de l'aorte de manière à pouvoir aider le ventricule gauche à propulser le sang vers l'avant pendant la systole afin de décharger le coeur, et également à pomper une quantité adéquate dans le sens inverse, pendant la diastole, pour assurer le flux coronaire.
