The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and the vasculature. The physiology of the system is to circulate blood through the vasculature ensuring delivery of oxygen and vital nutrients to cells and organs in the body. Consequences of diseases disrupting normal cardiovascular function can be severe or fatal. Recent advancements in cardiovascular medicine have contributed significantly to improving life span and quality for patients by restoring normal cardiovascular function through the use of implantable devices. Examples of these cardiovascular implantable
