dc.description.abstract The past five years have seen remarkable growth in the use of durable, continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) with associated improvements in mortality, quality of life, functionality and end-organ function. To sustain the growth of this important therapy, the LVAD community must now address key issues focused around the costs of LVAD care, refined patient selection, and reducing complications associated with this therapy. In this perspective piece, we discuss many of these issues.
