Bud Frazier, MD: LVAD update

July 20th

Former Vice President Dick Cheney recently underwent surgery to receive a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to treat his worsening heart failure. He benefited from the newly FDA-approved indication called destination therapy that allows for insurance reimbursement for patients who are not on a heart transplant list. Mr. Cheney received Thoratec’s (THOR) HeartMate 2 device.

The Healthcare Channel interviewed the pioneer of HeartMate 2 and many other LVADs, Dr. Bud Frazier in Texas. Topics discussed were:

  • Update on the adoption of HeartMate 2
  • Problems with a bleeding disorder caused by LVADs called impaired von Willebrand Factor-Dependent Platelet Aggregation
  • Treatment of stroke caused by LVADs
  • Other LVADs close to U.S. approval, notably the HeartWare and the Terumo devices
