Heart Pump Approved For Rest of Life Use
Medtronic's HeartWare HVAD system, a left ventricular assist device, has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a "destination therapy" for those with advanced heart failure that cannot receive a transplanted heart. The HeartWare HVAD heart pump is a centrifugal flow device that augments blood from the left ventricle into the body, alleviating the natural heart from having to produce all the cardiac output on its own.
