Heart failure is a disease often treated with the implementation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to assist the heart’s pumping function. The addition of one into the cardiovascular system induces external stimuli onto the left ventricle, which may lead to changes in the mechanical behavior of the heart and its function.
