Abbott’s heart pumps have set the standard in LVAD therapy. The HeartMate 3 LVAD is the most advanced LVAD yet. It is the only LVAD that uses a patented technology which helps protect the blood as it flows through the pump.

HeartMate 3 LVAD Therapy Helps People with Advanced Heart Failure:1

  • Reverse the symptoms of heart failure
  • Live longer
  • Live active, full lives with a better quality of life


Heart failure has devastating consequences in the United States and while the average age of patients is much higher, it can affect the lives of children and their families. For many types of pediatric heart failure patients, receiving a heart transplant is the gold standard in care. While waiting for a heart transplant, some children may require a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to support their heart until a donor heart is available. In addition, children who are not current candidates for heart transplantation may receive an LVAD to allow the child to resume a sense of normal life.
