My mother had the ‘old’ LVAD. Although the ‘Berlin Heart’ was available ONLY in a few states and it was experimental and unfortunately she didn’t get into that program. I do know of a baby who is 2 now and has had the Berlin for almost two yrs. His case is unique.

I am glad that these are finally available with having to get into the experimental program. These ‘hearts’ will no doubt better the quality of lives to those who must have one.
