Video series: heart failure, heart transplantation and left ventricular assist devices

We have produced a series of videos to provide patients with information about heart failure, heart transplantation and left ventricular assist devices (LVAD). The videos cover:

  • The assessment process for heart transplant and LVAD surgery
  • What a heart transplant and an LVAD procedure involves
  • Recovery time and care after surgery, including the long-term outlook for heart transplant and LVAD patients. 

Please note: These videos give you general information about heart transplant and LVAD surgery. They do not replace the need for personal advice from a healthcare professional. Please contact a member of your healthcare team if you have any questions.
