Research

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart diseases (cardiologists), doctors trained in heart surgery (cardiac surgeons) and others study ventricular assist devices (VADs) and other heart-assist devices such as the total artificial heart. You may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. Learn more about cardiovascular research in the Cardiovascular Research Center.

Areas of research may include:

  • Smaller models of VADs
  • Fully implantable VADs
  • New implantation techniques for VAD surgery, such as less invasive surgical techniques
  • Innovative approaches for left and right ventricular assist devices
  • Stem cell research
  • Outcomes of patients after implantation of VADs
  • Prevention and management of complications after implantation of VADs

Publications

See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic authors on ventricular assist devices on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
