Simulation of Dilated Heart Failure with Continuous Flow Circulatory Support

AUTHORS Yajuan Wang, Natasha Loghmanpour, Stijn Vandenberghe, Antonio Ferreira1, Bradley Keller, John Gorcsan, James Antaki ABSTRACT  Lumped parameter models have been employed for decades to simulate important hemodynamic couplings between a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and the native circulation. However, these studies seldom consider the pathological descending limb of the Frank-Starling response of the overloaded ventricle. […]
