Dengel and Templeton publish article in Heart and Vessel
Associate professor of kinesiology Dr. Donald Dengel and former doctoral student Danielle Templeton published an article in, Heart and Vessel.
The article is titled, "Effects of the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) on the compliance and distensibility of the carotid artery." The research focuses on the impact of continuous-flow LVAD on the carotid elastic properties. The findings of the research suggest that the continuous-flow LVAD is associated with lower carotid artery compliance and distensibility, potentially placing further strain on the left ventricle.
