The purpose of this clinical investigation is to report the long term survival and incidence of adverse events in the patients who were implanted with HM3 in the CE Mark Study and continue to be ongoing with the HeartMate 3 LVAS after the CE Mark Study 2 year follow-up.
The study will be a single arm, prospective, multi-center, non-blinded and non-randomized study, intended to report on the long term use of the HeartMate 3 LVAS in those patients that completed the 2-year follow-up in the HeartMate 3 CE Mark study.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether patients with chronic heart failure not due to coronary artery disease who require use of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) for refra...
Refractory right heart failure is common during the postoperative period after left ventricular assist device implantation. Oral phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors are oft initiated in order t...
Patients with congenital complete atrioventricular block often require lifelong pacemaker therapy which has a risk of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. The aim of our study was to determine the long-...
Cardiac resynchronization therapy constitutes a cornerstone in advanced heart failure treatment, when there is evidence of dyssynchrony, especially by electrocardiography. However, it is plagued both ...
Increased long-term mortality in women with high left ventricular ejection fraction: data from the CONFIRM (COronary CT Angiography EvaluatioN For Clinical Outcomes: An InteRnational Multicenter) long-term registry.
There are significant sex-specific differences in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), with a higher LVEF being observed in women. We sought to assess the clinical relevance of an increased LVEF...
We report 2 continuous flow HeartWareTM left ventricular assist devices successfully used in a patient with advanced heart failure of giant cell myocarditis origin in a biventricular configuration. De...
Previous studies have demonstrated that carefully selected donor hearts (DHs) with poor left ventricular ejection fraction (EF) may be transplanted with long-term survival equivalent to hearts with no...
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.
Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
Enlargement of the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart. This increase in ventricular mass is attributed to sustained abnormal pressure or volume loads and is a contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
