|Official Title:||A Prospective, Multi-center, Single Arm Study to Access the Safety and Probable Benefit of the Berlin Heart EXCOR® Pediatric Ventricular Assist Device [EXCOR Pediatric]|
- The Safety of EXCOR® Pediatric Was Evaluated by Summarizing the Serious Adverse Event Rate Experienced While the Subject Was Supported on the Device. [ Time Frame: Participants were followed while on device support, an average of 58 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]The serious adverse event rate was calculated by totaling the number of serious adverse events all subjects experienced during device support (from implant to explant, an average of 58 days) divided by the total support time (in days) for all subjects. The serious adverse event rates were calculated separately for each primary study cohort.
- Efficacy of the EXCOR® Pediatric Was Estimated by Showing Survival of All Participants Who Were Supported by the Device. [ Time Frame: Participants were followed while on device support, an average of 58 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Efficacy of the EXCOR® Pediatric was estimated by showing survival of all participants who were supported by the device.
