LVAD... Left Ventricular Assist Device

THIS BLOG POWERED BY THE THORATEC HEARTMATE II LVAD:















PARTIAL HEART PUMP = LEFT VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE = LVAD = THE HEARTMATE II



THE LVAD ALLOWED ME to go HOME and conquer my normal and newest tasks once again.



Thank you Columbia-Presbyterian... Dr Naka and his Surgery Team, LVAD Nation, Dr Bijou & Dr Bonoan, Dr Mascitelli and Dr Shulman-Marcus!!!



AND TO THE SCORES OF PHYSICIANS, NURSES, PROFESSIONALS AND PEOPLE THAT PUSHED ME ALONG THE WAY... FORWARD.

I AM AN LVAD RECIPIENT... AND AN LVAD PATIENT WHEN AT MY LVAD HOSPITAL APPOINTMENTS


  • I feel well. I do not feel like a patient. In my opinion, I am not.

  • I am a recipient of an artificial (partial) organ.

I am an LVAD Recipient :-)

  • Plain and simple... for me... The LVAD Restores Life!

  • Thank you Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital / NYC and Thank You Thoratec

And the good saga continues...

  4. BRAVO!!!!! Very well put and true. I remember someone once telling his boss that his kidneys went not his brains and also being called the sick man that lived on top of the hill when in essence he was healthier and happier than those who spoke. Thanks to dialysis and MANY THANKS and APPRECIATION to the LVAD for allowing the good saga to continue.
