Davis et al. share in this Heart Lung and Circulation article the experience from the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne supporting 14 children less than year old with Berlin Heart EXCOR® Pediatric.

The patient population had a median age of 0.37 years (IQR 0.09 – 0.7), weight 5.7kg (IQR 3.5 – 7.95) and duration of support 110 days (IQR 40 – 161), resulting in an 86% survival and low rate of neurological dysfunction (14% TE stroke).
