Recent months have seen a host of important cardiology research breakthroughs related to new cardio devices and diagnostics, tissue engineering and the overall understanding of heart disease and its treatment.

For example,  a customizable robotic heart sleeve – developed at Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital – has demonstrated advantages over other heart assist devices such as VADs when it comes to aiding the beating of a failing heart.

Editors Chris Newmarker and Danielle Kirsh from MassDevice’s Medical Design & Outsourcing explain about the robotic heart sleeve advance and more in MDO’s latest video. (And for a more in-depth dive into the subject, check out our story about cardiology breakthroughs.)
