Heart failure is a major public health problem. It is estimated that worldwide more than 5 million people die per year due to heart failure. In addition, it accounts for a large portion of health care expenditure and rehospitalisation. Circulatory support devices are needed for promoting myocardial recovery following acute heart failure as well as long-term support until eventual transplantation or permanent therapy. Circulatory support devices may be fully implanted, partially implanted, or delivered by percutaneous approach. The growth of heart failure is expected to increase with the aging population.
