In-vitro investigation of a potential wave pumping effect in human aorta

An impedance pump – also known as Liebau pump – is a simple valveless pump that operates based on the principles of wave propagation and reflection. It has been shown in embryonic zebrafish that a similar mechanism is responsible for the pumping action in the embryonic heart during the early stages before valve formation...
