(The aorta is the main artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the body.) RVADs usually are used only for short-term support of the right ventricle after LVAD surgery or other heart surgery.
Although there is research discussing the outcomes of patient's status post LVAD placement, safe and effective exercise parameters need to be explored for all types of VADs (eg, RVAD and BiVAD).
VADs can be made specifically for the left ventricle (LVAD) or the right ventricle (RVAD) and some can work on either side (BiVAD).
The Cleveland Clinic was investigating the use of ceramic materials for potential use in a right ventrical assist device (DexAide RVAD) to replace the current coated titanium stator housing used in the pump assembly.
