We may recommend the Impella ventricular assist device to help your heart pump blood more easily until we can perform a heart transplant.

Overview

We will use minimally invasive surgery to insert the Impella ventricular assist device. The device can multiply your blood flow on a temporary basis until we can find a donor heart and perform a transplant. Before surgery, our cardiology team will help you and your family understand how the device works and what to expect. Our goal is to give you the best care possible throughout your treatment and recovery.
