About HeartWare

Since the company was founded in 1995, HeartWare has focused on transforming the treatment of heart failure through the development of revolutionary and life-sustaining products that address the unique needs of heart failure patients, surgeons and care teams.

The HVAD System is much smaller than traditional ventricular assist devices (VADs), yet equally powerful. The first HVAD Pump was implanted in 2006. To date, the HVAD System has been used to treat more than 10,000 patients with advanced heart failure in more than 47 countries throughout the world.
