Abstract

An actuation system (82) for assisting the operation of the natural heart includes a framework (70) for interfacing with a natural heart and which is coupled with tissue of the heart. An actuator element (86) is adapted to be coupled to the framework (70) and is configured for extending along a portion of a heart wall exterior surface. The actuator element (86) is operable for deforming the portion of the heart wall to effect a reduction in the volume of the heart. A protective sheath (84) is configured to extend along the heart wall between the actuator element and the heart wall portion for protecting the heart wall portion from damage by the actuator element. The protective sheath (84) is flexible and operable to transmit, to the heart wall portion, a force thereon by the actuator element (86) for indenting the heart wall portion.
