WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Novant Health’s Heart & Vascular Institute Heart Failure Program is now offering a new local procedure to help advanced and end-stage heart failure.
Serving more than 1,000 patients each year in the Coastal region, the Heart & Vascular Institute is offering a procedure using a mechanical heart pump called a left ventricular assist device (LVAD).
“The award-winning multidisciplinary program supports patients battling heart failure, a chronic and progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen,” a Novant representative said.
The device can help patients live longer and feel better.
