At NYU Langone’s Heart Failure Advanced Care Center, our experts are specially trained to evaluate and treat people with any stage or type of heart failure—including those who are considering a ventricular assist device (VAD) or a heart transplant.

Our Personalized Approach

The Heart Failure Advanced Care Center’s mission is to empower you to take control of your health by educating you and your family about how to best manage your heart condition. When you come to us for care, we evaluate not only your heart, but also your overall health for a more holistic approach to treatment.

Our doctors and nurses are specialists in advanced heart failure. We know that many people with heart failure often have other conditions such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and anemia, so we work with you and your other physicians to address your full medical history and unique health goals to develop a personalized treatment plan using the most advanced therapeutics.

Recognition

U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone one of the top hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery.

Your healthcare team works with you to put that treatment plan into action. A specially trained nurse practitioner shows you successful strategies to monitor heart failure, and teaches you lifestyle modifications to maximize your heart health. A clinical pharmacist explains how each of your medications works and its possible side effects, and reviews your medication list to identify potential drug interactions.

If you have symptoms of advanced heart failure, our team of experts may recommend that you be evaluated for a VAD or heart transplantation. Because our heart failure experts also comprise the core of our heart transplantation team, your transition of care is seamless.

Ventricular Assist Device Clinical Trial

NYU Langone cardiac experts are recruiting patients with advanced heart failure for a clinical trial of a new VAD called NuPulse Intravascular Ventricular Assist System, or iVAS.

The iVAS is more portable than traditional VADs, allowing people increased mobility inside and outside the home. The procedure to place the device is also less invasive than traditional VADs. The iVAS may be appropriate for people who are not candidates for a left ventricular assist device and can provide cardiac support while you await a heart transplant.

If you are interested in learning more about this clinical trial, including eligibility criteria, please call Dr. Deane E. Smith at 646-501-0151 or Dr. Claudia G. Gidea at 646-501-0119.
