Keeping the Smallest Failing Hearts Going

October 13, 2022

When children suffer from heart failure and all medical options are exhausted, sometimes the next option is to use mechanical support to keep their heart going. The machine that supports this is called a Ventricular Assist Device, commonly known as a VAD. 

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago is the home to the #1 ranked pediatric Heart Center in Illinois and offers one of the highest-volume pediatric ventricular assist device (VAD) programs in the world. Learn more from some of the leaders at that program at Lurie Children’s, Dr. Anna Joong and Dr. Michael Mongé
