Abstract

It would be appropriate that a patient who would not be able to tolerate one or two weeks waiting time to be considered as a candidate for MCS implantation in the presence of the HU program. The patient selection criteria for MCS implantation should include not only hemodynamic parameters, but also the aspect of a beginning multi-organ failure.
