A Left Ventricular Assist Device, or LVAD, is a mechanical pump that is implanted inside a person's chest to help a weakened heart pump blood. Unlike a total artificial heart, the LVAD doesn't replace the heart.
The Left Ventricular Assist Device procedure involves the placement of a battery-operated, mechanical pump, which then helps the left ventricle (main pumping chamber of the heart) pump blood to the rest of the body.
The right doctor to consult for left ventricular assist device placement is a Cardiac Surgeon.
The usual success rate varies between 71-82%.
Possible risks after LVAD may include Bleeding, Stroke, Infection, right heart dysfunction, etc
