A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a pump for patients with advanced heart failure. Once implanted, the device is designed to help the left ventricle of your patient’s heart pump blood to the rest of their body. LVADs can be used as bridge-to-transplant therapy and/or destination therapy. LVADs are an important therapy option for patients with Class IIIB or IV heart failure. The LVAD you choose can impact your patient's quality of life.
