For example, its instantaneous value could be directly modified, or alternatively, another method is to modify its amplitude, or both its amplitude and its instantaneous value, on different feedback loops as illustrated in FIG. 10, membrane 97 may have a reduced thickness as the membrane extends from rigid membrane ring 96 to circular aperture 99. Alternatively, or in addition to, membrane 97 may incorporate metallic elements such as a spiral spring to enhance the spring force of the membrane in a direction normal to plane of the membrane, and this spring force may vary radially along the membrane. The interior surface of lower housing portion 25 may also slope upward as it extends radially inward.

1 as integrated with belt 42, so that cable 41 routed through the belt and extends around the patient’s back until it couples to controller 30. In this manner, battery 40 may be removed from belt 42 and disconnected from controller 30 to enable the patient to periodically replace the battery with a fully charged battery. Skirt 119 is preferably impermeable such that blood cannot flow through skirt 119, and exhibits rigid properties under typical forces experienced during the full range of operation of the present invention and may be made of a biocompatible metal, e.g., titanium. 2017/0290966 and 2017/0290967 to Botterbusch, the entire contents of each of which are incorporated herein by reference, describe implantable cardiovascular blood pumps having a flexible membrane coupled to an electromagnetic actuator assembly that causes wavelike undulations to propagate along the flexible membrane to propel blood through the pump while avoiding thrombus formation, hemolysis and/or platelet activation.

Further, depending on the geometry of the pump, areas of little or no flow may result in flow stagnation, which can lead to thrombus formation and potentially fatal medical conditions, such as stroke. U.S. Pat. No. 9,080,564 to Drevet, entitled “Diaphragm Circulator,” describes a tensioned deformable membrane in which undulations are created by electromechanically moving a magnetized ring, attached to an outer edge of a deformable membrane, over a coil.
Axial displacement of magnetized ring causes undulations of membrane. Like positive displacement pumps, rotary pumps apply significant shear forces to the blood, thereby posing a risk of hemolysis and platelet activation. Pumps other than of the rotary and positive displacement types are known in the art for displacing fluid. Dolor de espalda al estar sentado . Other components of pump assembly 70, such as stator assembly 72, preferably also are insulated and/or made of non-conductive material to reduce unwanted transmission of the electrical signal. Implantable pump 20 may be affixed within the patient’s chest using a ring-suture or other conventional technique.
Additionally, the implantable blood pump further may include a rigid ring coupled to the moving component and to the deformable membrane. The Reich patent describes a centrifugal pump having an inlet connected to a rigid cannula that is coupled to the left ventricular cavity and a Dacron graft extending from the pump diffuser to the aorta. What is needed is an energy efficient implantable pump having light weight, small size, and fast start and stop response that can operate efficiently and with improved hydraulic performance and minimal blood damage over a wide range of flow rates. While such systems can achieve flow rates as high as 8 or 9 liters per minute, these flow rates generally are outside of the efficient range of operation for current rotary pumps, which are typically tuned to operate in a range of 4 to 6 liters per minute.
Also, to mimic a typical physiological pulse of 60 beats per minute, implantable pump 20 may pulse about once per second. In addition to merely pumping blood from the left ventricle to the aorta, implantable pump 20 of the present invention may be operated to closely mimic physiologic pulsatility, without loss of pump efficiency. 20, yet another alternative exemplary embodiment of the pump assembly of the present invention is described. This effect can be bounded by adding another stage to the observer. This could be implemented using various methods.
21A-21H, various configurations for energizing the implantable pumps of the present invention, e.g., implantable pumps 20, 20″, 20′″, and 20″″, described above are provided. Similarly, when controller 40 is electrically coupled to AC/DC power supply 109, the circuitry may allow AC/DC power supply 109 to charge the internal battery while also energizing the implantable pump until the internal battery is recharged to a desired amount, at which point the circuitry allows AC/DC power supply 109 to solely energize the implantable pump. First electromagnetic coil 77 may be activated by controller applying an electrical signal from battery 40 to first electromagnetic coil 77, thus inducing current in the electromagnetic coil and generating a magnetic field surrounding electromagnetic coil 77. The direction of the current in electromagnetic coil 77 and the polarity of magnetic ring assembly 76 nearest electromagnetic coil 77 may be configured such that the first electromagnetic coil magnetically attracts or repeals magnetic ring assembly 76 as desired.
