BACKGROUND: Previous thoracic artificial lungs (TALs) had blood flow impedance greater than that of the natural lungs, which could cause abnormal pulmonary hemodynamics. New compliant TALs (cTALs), however, have an impedance lower than that of the natural lung. METHODS: In this study, a cTAL of new design was attached between the pulmonary artery (PA) and the left atrium (LA) in 5 sheep (60.2 ± 1.9 kg). A distal PA band was placed to control the...
