Left Ventricular Assist Device Experts

The following experts are available as left ventricular assist device consultants and left ventricular assist device expert witnesses.  ORC experts are peer-recommended authorities who have been carefully selected and rigorously screened.
    Definition:  Left Ventricular Assist Device - A blood pump which is designed for long-term support of the left ventricle when the heart is weakened. It allows blood to drain from the left ventricle to the pump, and, when full, pumps the blood into the aorta. It is usually powered by a small battery pack worn in a shoulder holster, and is implanted in the abdomen just below the diaphragm with a tube connecting the pump to the left ventricle of the heart. It is used to temporarily assist failing hearts until a heart transplant can be performed.

Synonyms:  LVAD
