Treatment & Options for Heart Transplant Patients
Our team’s goal is to diagnose and treat your child’s heart condition as early in life as possible. This gives your child the best possible chance for healthy growth and development.
When it comes to advanced support, your child will have access to the best. Our physicians were among the very first to petition the FDA for unique use of the Berlin Heart external pump device to support patients awaiting transplant, and our hospital holds the record for longest pediatric heart-assist in North America, at 234 days.
As a leading children’s heart center, we routinely provide advanced cardiac support, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and external right and/or left ventricular assist device (RVAD/LVAD) support for younger children, as well as totally implantable LVAD support for older patients.
