HeartMate 3 LVAD Patient Education

Patients with advanced heart failure may not fully grasp that heart failure is a serious, progressive disease. They may not realize how sick they truly are until it’s too late.

You can help your patients understand if HeartMate 3™ LVAD therapy might be a treatment option before their heart failure progresses, giving them more time to decide and plan for their heart failure treatment.

Here are a few points you might want to share with your patients:

  • LVAD therapy is an option for patients with NYHA Class IIIB-IV heart failure
  • HeartMate 3 LVAD is a small implantable pump that is designed to help their heart pump blood
  • There have been significant clinical advancements in LVAD therapy, with HeartMate 3 LVAD survival rate now comparable to heart transplant at 2 years1,2*
  • HeartMate 3 LVAD has an excellent safety profile, with reduced stroke and pump thrombosis adverse events rates3
