Ventricular Assist Devices
Ventricular assist devices (VAD) can keep the blood pumping properly while a person with serious heart issues waits for a heart transplant. They may also be used as permanent solutions for people who have severe heart failure, and have another chronic disease or issue that makes them ineligible for a heart transplant.
