A Left Ventricular Assist Device, or LVAD, is a mechanical pump that is implanted inside a person's chest to help a weakened heart pump blood. Unlike a total artificial heart, the LVAD doesn't replace the heart. The Left Ventricular Assist Device procedure involves the placement of 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.

The purpose of LVAD and pacemaker are different, LVAD helps the heart in pumping the blood effectively, while a pacemaker helps in correcting the irregular or slow heartbeat. Pacemaker generates electrical stimulation which regulated heart beat.

This device is not new, it was invented in 1962 and it was first time implanted in 1966 in a 37 years old patient.

Patients who cannot do any  physical activity because of their cardiac disease, they are comfortable only when they are resting.

Yes, LVAD devices are now portable, you can return home with the LVAD and continue your normal activities while waiting for a heart to become available.

During the Procedure (3 Questions):

This device is implanted during open heart surgery, the pump unit is placed in the chest which is implanted by the surgeon into the apex of heart where it receives blood. A tube is used which delivers blood from aorta  which works by pumping blood continuously from left ventricle to aorta. The pump is attached to cable and the controller, the cable passes from the device through the skin on your belly to controller and a small computer is placed outside your body. Controller  provides you the message and alarm for helping your operating system.
