Real People, Real Stories

Here is what real people have to say about life after receiving their HeartMate 3™ LVAD:

Kyla’s Story

After two healthy pregnancies, Kyla's third pregnancy caused peripartum cardiomyopathy. Here's how she was able to have hope again and why she calls LVAD therapy her "saving grace.”

Martha’s Story

Martha tried diet, exercise, medicines, and a defibrillator. When those stopped working, she got another chance with LVAD therapy. Now she says, buoyed by the love of her two daughters, “I’m not stopping.”

Ron’s Story

After a surprising decline with heart failure, Ron received a HeartMate 3 LVAD. See how he went from feeling he didn't have much time left to enjoying activities with his wife and grandkids again.

Associated risk of LVAD therapy can include bleeding, stroke, thrombosis and other possible adverse events.

“My life changed, for the better. I woke up refreshed, I woke up feeling like a million bucks.”

— Martha, HeartMate 3 LVAD Recipient
