The Heart Restoration Program at UAMS Health provides medical and surgical services to treat adult patients suffering from early to late stages of heart failure. The goal of the program is to help people with heart failure live more comfortably through advanced therapy options and a range of procedures both simple and complex, including:
- Treatment of valve problems by surgery and less invasive treatment option such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), mitral valve clips or biventricular pace makers.
- Cardio-MEMS implant devices that monitor heart function and send signals to UAMS computers so physicians can make medication adjustments without the patient having to return to the hospital.
- Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), which are implantable mechanical pumps that may be used as a bridge to heart transplantation or as a treatment in lieu of transplant.
