Abstract

The Hemopump (Johnson & Johnson Interventional Systems, Rancho Cordova, CA) can be used successfully as a bridge to cardiac transplantation in patients with advanced cardiogenic shock that proves to be irreversible. Some patients, however, may also benefit from maintaining Hemopump support for a period of time after transplantation. A technique has been developed for continuing Hemopump support after transplantation that does not require repositioning of the device. © 1992.
