Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival [ Time Frame: 30 days after device removal, or, induction of anesthesia for implant of a long-term device or heart transplant ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    In patients who recover and do not go on to transplantation or a long-term device:

    • Survival 30 days after removal of the CentriMag VAS or to discharge, whichever is longer.

    In patients who do not recover:

    • Ability to be removed from the CentriMag VAS and survive to induction of anesthesia for implantation of a long-term device or heart transplantation.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of end-organ function [ Time Frame: 30 days after device removal, or, to induction of anesthesia for implant of a long-term device or heart transplant ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvements in measures of end-organ function
