Left ventricular assist device, or LVAD, is a mechanical pump that is surgically implanted just below the heart in a patient with heart failure. The device helps the left ventricle to pump blood to the aorta and the rest of the body. It is often called a ‘bridge to transplant’. Although the placement of LVAD requires open-heart surgery, it can be a lifesaver for patients suffering from severe heart failure.
Care Hospital specializes in delivering the best quality and advanced LVAD surgery in an environment that’s supportive, caring and compassionate. Comprehensive and individualized treatments are promised by our experts across different specialties.
