Left Ventricular Assist System (LVAS)

Left Ventricular Assist System (LVAS)

Left Ventricular Assist System (LVAS) is a heart pump system that helps the heart's left ventricle in delivering blood to all parts of the body. The device is used for heart failure patients whose hearts are unable to pump blood effectively. LVAS is made up of a blood pump that is implanted inside the patient's body and a pump controller with batteries that remains outside the patient's body. This blood pump does not replace the natural function of the heart. Instead, it works simultaneously with the patient's own heart to pump blood. It assists the heart by supporting the weak left ventricle and providing additional blood flow.
