Ventricular assist devices are external devices attached to a patient’s body, which helps to pump blood to whole body. It is principally used in case of patients with heart failure. It is a high-end device that mimics the function of the heart. Heart failure is a condition in which heart muscles weaken, and thus unable to pump sufficient amount of blood to body. Various conditions such as heart attacks, high blood pressure, defective heart valves, irregular heart rhythms, diabetes, and chronic kidney and lung diseases cause heart failure. Medication, implantable heart devices (pacemakers), and heart transplantation are some of the options for treatment of heart failure. However, these approaches have limitations that may lead to advanced heart failure condition, thereby increasing the demand for ventricular assist devices (VADs). VADs lowers the work load on failing heart and help in maintaining smooth blood flow to vital organs.
