As we continue to care for patients with heart failure the need for ventricular assistance wether permanent or temporary is evident. This presentation supports the continued research and development of new short-term and long-term support. I will present data collected to show long waiting list for heart transplants and a little increase if not decrease in areas of donors. I will also present information from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania to show what our center is doing to help patients with end stage heart disease.
