As donor hearts are rare and the waiting time is long, more and more patients are supported with a mechanical heart support system until heart transplantation.
Negative long-term outcomes included no heart transplantation, an inability to wean off the LVAD within 6 months, support for less than 6 months in patients with permanent implants, and failure to continue support for more than 6 months in other patients, said Dr.
To see whether the heart has untapped potential to resuscitate itself, Anversa and his colleagues studied cardiac stem cells in 52 hearts that had been removed from people during heart transplantation or shortly after death from a heart attack or another cause.
In August, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) filed a notice in the Federal Register that all VADs implanted for DT would be reimbursed under DRG 103-the highest paying DRG, which covers heart transplantation procedures-for the federal government's fiscal year beginning October 1.
