ESAO has been one of the leading research societies in the field of artificial organs, with the participation of more than 400 scholars and experts worldwide, covering various fields of artificial organs, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. The International Journal of Artificial Organs is the world's leading collection of research on artificial organs.
MoyoAssist® Extra-VAD, the firstly-developed extracorporeal ventricular assist device in China. Through magnetic levitation technology, magAssist team allows the impeller to drive the blood without any mechanical contact while combining cutting-edge fluid dynamics optimization technology to avoid crushing the blood cells and solve the damage to them. MoyoAssist Extra-VAD® has entered the clinical trial and demonstrated excellent hemocompatibility, making promising progress.
Prof. A W Khir, Chairman of the ESAO Conference, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Brunel University, UK, expressed high recognition of the technical level and execution of the magAssist team and hoped that magAssist would promote more international technical exchanges in the future. Professor Ping Li from Wuhan Union Hospital presented a series of pre-clinical hemocompatibility evaluations and clinical applications of MoyoAssist Extra-VAD® by the Wuhan Union Hospital team and the Soochow University team, and gave high praise to the product.
