Types of VADs

Which type of ventricular assist device (VAD) is used in a patient depends on the individual’s medical history. At the VAD Program at Heart Success in Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center, we offer both long and short-term options using some of the most advanced technology:

ImpellaAbiomed® Impella Catheter System
The Impella catheter system is a temporary support device that allows the heart to rest. It is designed for patients who may recover from acute heart failure, and for those awaiting transplant or a more permanent VAD.

 

   

 

CentrimagSaint Jude Medical Centrimag®
The Centrimag ventricular assist system is a short-term support device that can be used after heart surgery or in an emergency to allow the heart to rest following acute heart failure. Patients awaiting a more permanent solution, such as a heart transplant, may benefit from this technology.

 

 

HeartMate II

Saint Jude Medical Heartmate II® Left Ventricular Device (LVAD)
The Heartmate II LVAD, a surgically implanted blood pump that supports the left side of the heart, is used for destination therapy and bridge to transplantation.  Both of these procedures are considered long-term VAD options.
