The demand for transplantable hearts exceeds the supply, and transplant candidates often wait long periods before a suitable donor organ becomes available.

This article describes the development of control techniques for ventricular-assist devices and a hierarchical control structure to regulate the operation of a turbo-hydrodynamic assist device.
