Novel Transcutaneous Energy Transfer (TET) Device
Applications: A ventricular assist device (VAD) is an auxiliary blood circulation pump. It is implanted to assist the left, right or both ventricles to enhance circulation. The power source is worn externally by the patient with a cable going through the skin. The opening in the skin becomes a portal for serious infection which may also travel...
