CHIMHUNDU, C; DE JAGER, K  and  DOUGLAS, T S. Focus areas of cardiovascular medical device research in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2016, vol.106, n.1, pp.55-56. ISSN 2078-5135.

We investigated the focus of cardiovascular medical device research in South Africa over the 15-year period 2000 - 2014. Information drawn from journal articles was used for the analysis, with attention to articles describing a contribution to the development of a cardiovascular medical device, or a new application of an existing device. The findings suggest that research has focused on diagnostic and monitoring as well as prosthetic cardiovascular medical devices, with specific emphasis on vascular and valvular heart diseases.
