Few innovations in medicine have so convincingly and expeditiously improved patient outcomes more than the development of the left ventricular assist device (LVAD). Where optimal pharmacotherapy once routinely failed those with end-stage disease, the LVAD now offers considerable hope for the growing advanced heart failure population. Despite improvements in mortality, however, mechanical circulatory support is not without its limitations. Those supported with an LVAD are at increased risk of… CONTINUE READING
