The HeartMate 3® Left Ventricular Assist System (LVAS) is a left ventricular assist device that is currently being studied for use in people with advanced heart failure. The HeartMate 3® is in a category of pumps called centrifugal pumps. The job of the HeartMate 3® is to increase blood flow to the body and can pump up to 10 liters per minute of blood . Increasing blood flow to the body can improve a person's ability to function and may increase the amount of time a person can live with heart failure.
The HeartMate 3® is currently only available through participation in a clinical trial. For more information about the trial and what centers are participating throughout the world please click here.
