With the HeartMate 3™ LVAD, you can
make a meaningful difference in patient lives.

How your patients live their lives depends on the LVAD you choose. The HeartMate 3 LVAD can now be used for advanced heart failure patients needing short- or long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., bridge to transplant (BTT) or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy (DT)).

HeartMate 3 LVAD delivers unprecedented* survival and safety outcomes as demonstrated in the MOMENTUM 3 Trial at two years.1**

Full MagLev Flow Technology maintains gentle blood handling to minimize complications and reduce hemocompatibility-related adverse events.

  • Fully levitated, self-centering rotor that does not require hydrodynamic or mechanical bearings.
  • Large, consistent blood flow pathways to reduce shear stress7
  • Intrinsic pulsatility to reduce stasis and minimize thrombus7,8

Heartmate 3 LVAD Makes A Real Difference In Patients’ Lives

Significant improvements in NYHA class, 6-minute walk distance, and quality of life1

More than 78% of patients improved to NYHA Class I/II from NYHA Class IIIB/IV by 6 months, with sustained improvement in 79% of patients through 2 years (P<0.0001).1

Significant improvements in NYHA Class, 6-minute walk distance, and quality of life

Significant increase in 6-minute walk distance1

At baseline, tested patients completed the 6-minute walk test at an average of 154 meters. At 2 years after HeartMate 3™ LVAD implant, patients completed the test at an average of 308 meters (P<0.0001).1

Indications and Important Safety Information

Rx Only
Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions For Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

Indications: The HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist System is indicated for providing short- and long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., as bridge to transplant or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy) in patients with advanced refractory left ventricular heart failure.

Contraindications: The HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist System is contraindicated for patients who cannot tolerate, or who are allergic to, anticoagulationtherapy.

Adverse Events: Adverse events that may be associated with the use of the HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist System are: death, bleeding, cardiac arrhythmia, localized infection, right heart failure, respiratory failure, device malfunctions, driveline infection, renal dysfunction, sepsis, stroke, other neurological event (not stroke-related), hepatic dysfunction, psychiatric episode, venous thromboembolism, hypertension, arterial non-central nervous system (CNS) thromboembolism, pericardial fluid collection, pump pocket or pseudo pocket infection, myocardial infarction, wound dehiscence, hemolysis (not associated with suspected device thrombosis) or device thrombosis.
