Unfortunately, rejection occurred and the patient needed a second, new heart. In the meantime, author (physicist) designed and B. Stolarzewicz (chemist) performed a new Polish ventricular assist pump named POLVAD. After tests, POLVAD was ready for clinical applications. It happened that the first patient to use POLVAD was the same patient T. Gruszczyn´ski (the heart was rejected after 2 years). Fortunately, the POLVAD worked very well, and after 21 days, the heart transplantation was performed.

Some blockages in the arteries are hard, calcified deposits that do not respond to balloon angioplasty or stent implantation. In this case, the rotablator technique may be introduced. This is a small device used inside of the coronary arteries to “drill” through the calcified blockage. It breaks the calcium into microscopic pieces and disintegrates the blockage. Percutaneous balloon dilation of isolated congenital semilunar valvular stenoses has proven to be highly effective in providing long-term hemodynamic and symptomatic benefit in neonatal, pediatric, and adult patient populations.

Two continuous flow rotary VADs that use axial flow or centrifugal flow – the IncorÒ VAD (Berlin Heart) and the DeBakey VAD – have been introduced into routine clinical care. Some further devices are still being subjected to clinical trials: Jarvik 2000 (Jarvik, New York, NY, USA), HeartMate II, DuraheartÒ (Terumo Kabushiki Kaisha Corporation, Shibuya-ku, Japan), VentrAssist (Ventracor, Chatswood, NSW, Australia), and CorAidÒ (Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA) [3]. The Incor device (Berlin Heart AG) is 146 mm long and 30 mm wide and weighs 200 g.
