Abstract

The first report about the atrio-aortic left ventricular assist device (AA-LVAD) was given by Kusserow [8, 9]. It was followed by the substantial work of Liotta and De Bakey [10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15]. Kirsch et al. [7] showed the efficacy of a temporary AA-LVAD in severe myocardial infarction in the dog. Pierce et al. [23, 24] and Vadot et al. [32] later applied continuously working pumps. Subsequently Takano et al. [29, 30] constructed a complicated six-chamber bypass pump with peristaltic action. Finally Takagi et al. [27, 28] implanted two blood pumps in parallel which were activated alternately to achieve a better blood flow from the atrium.
