With The HeartMate 3 LVAD, You Can Make A Meaningful Difference In Patients' Lives

How your patients live their lives depends on the LVAD you choose. The HeartMate 3™ LVAD can be used for advanced heart failure patients needing short- or long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., bridge to transplant (BTT) or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy (DT)).


HeartMate 3 LVAD Delivers Unprecedented* Survival And Safety Outcomes**1

MOMENTUM 3 was the largest left ventricular assist device (LVAD) trial ever conducted.*** The results at 2 years show that the HeartMate 3 LVAD continues to have:

The Highest Survival Rates for Any LVAD in a Randomized Controlled Trial1-3

The Lowest Hemocompatibility-Related Adverse Event Rates of Any LVAD†,††,1-4

Immediate, Significant and Sustained Improvements in Functional Capacity and Quality of Life1

Based on published data from multicenter experience and separate studies, which may involve different patient populations and other variables. Not a head-to-head comparison. Data presented for informational purposes only.


Outcomes Made Possible by Full MagLev™ Flow Technology

Full MagLev™ Flow Technology maintains gentle blood handling to minimize complications and hemocompatibility-related adverse events.

  • Fully levitated, self-centering rotor that does not require hydrodynamic or mechanical bearings.
  • Large, consistent blood flow pathways to reduce shear stress5
  • Intrinsic pulsatility to reduce stasis and minimize thrombus5,6
Full MagLev Flow Technology compared to hydrodynamic bearing pump

OTHER HEARTMATE 3 LVAD FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
  • Offers up to 17 hours of battery life for patient confidence and convenience
  • Designed for intrapericardial placement
  • Features a thin, mechanical apical cuff lock for pump attachment
  • Incorporates a modular driveline that facilitates replacement of externalized portion

HeartMate 3 LVAD Provides Immediate, Significant, And Sustained Improvements In Functional Capacity And Quality Of Life1

Significant improvement in NYHA Class, 6-Minute Walk Distance, and Quality of Life1


 

80% 24 months

79% of patients improved from NYHA Class IIIB/IV at baseline to NYHA Class I/II by 6 months, with sustained improvement of 80% of patients through 2 year. (P < .0001)1,8

KCCQ Score +30 Points

Quality of life score improved significantly and was sustained at 2 years.1

Significant Increase In 6-Minute Walk Distance

At baseline, tested patients completed the 6-minute walk test at an average of 136 meters. At 2 years after HeartMate 3 LVAD implant, patients completed the test at an average of 323 meters.1
