LVAD – Left Ventricular Assist Device

Fig 1: Diagram of ThoratecHeartMate II in relation to heart

How did we get here?

Why?

Heart failure

1 million hospital discharges

Scarcity of organ donors

2200 transplants/ year

Bridge to Transplant or Destination Therapy

Benefits of Destination Therapy:

Survival benefit in end stage heart failure

2 year survival – 77% vs. 8-10% with medications

Symptomatic

Drawbacks (Complications):

Gastro-intestinal bleeding (22%)

Stroke (8%)

Infection (30%)

Major/ Sepsis (17%)

Minor (13%)
