Abstract
Four transplant candidates fulfilling the Food and Drug Administration criteria for a permanent left ventricular assist device received a pneumatic HeartMate system as a bridge to heart transplantation. All patients survived and were fully rehabilitated at the time of transplantation, which was carried out 2 to 6 months after the initial operation. There were no major complications associated with the procedures. We are impressed by the effectiveness and safety of the device.
