WHAT IS AN LVAD IMPLANT ?

The left ventricular assist device, or LVAD, is a device that takes over the left ventricle’s pumping action when it fails. It helps increase blood flow to the body and improve organ function and relieve the common symptoms of congestive heart failure. In turn, patients can expect greater life expectancy and better quality of life, with more energy and freedom to be active.
