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

How your patients live their lives depends on the LVAD you choose. The HeartMate 3 LVAD can 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)).


MOMENTUM 3 was the largest left ventricular assist device (LVAD) trial ever conducted.*** The results at 2 years show that the HeartMate 3™ LVAD continues to have:

79%25 24 months after implant icon

the highest survival rate for any lvad in a randomized controlled trial†,1-3

10%25 stroke and 1%25 thrombosis icon

the lowest hemocompatibility-related adverse event rates of any lvad†,††,1-4

outcomes made possible by Full MagLev™ Flow Technology

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 stress5
  • Intrinsic pulsatility to reduce stasis and minimize thrombus5,6

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 136 meters. At 2 years after HeartMate 3™ LVAD implant, patients completed the test at an average of 323 meters.1

††Key adverse events include pump thrombosis, stroke and gastrointestinal bleeding.

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 adult and pediatric patients with advanced refractory left ventricular heart failure and with an appropriate body surface area.

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 pump thrombosis.
