Abstract

The drive-line to power contemporary ventricular assist devices exiting the skin is associated with infection, and requires a holstered performance of the cardiac pump, which reduces overall quality of life. Attempts to eliminate the drive-line using transcutaneous energy transfer systems have been explored but have not succeeded in viable widespread application. The unique engineering of the coplanar energy transfer system is characterized by 2 large rings utilizing a coil-within-the-coil topology, ensuring robust resonance energy transfer while allowing for a substantial (>6 hours) unholstered circulatory support powered by an implantable battery source. Herein we report the first known human experience with this novel technology, coupled with a continuous-flow assist left ventricular assist device, in 2 consecutive patients evaluated with the primary end-point of system performance at 30 days post-implantation.
