What is a LVAD?
A left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a pump that is used for patients who have reached end-stage heart failure. It is surgically implanted and is 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.
