Advancing Research and Innovation
At University Hospitals, we are always exploring opportunities for patients to have a better quality of life by maximizing the lifespan of their heart transplant. We participate in many innovative studies, including those funded by the NIH that look at new treatment options and follow up protocols. Our multidisciplinary team constantly reassesses the patient outcomes and benefits to institute quality enrichment to our transplant care. We offer the opportunity for participation in these studies to any of the qualified patients. Furthermore, selected patients may be candidates for implantable heart pumps known as ventricular assist devices (VADs.) when transplantation is not possible.
