The EVAHEART® left ventricular assist device (LVAD) system has been used in over 170 patients as bridge to transplantation (BTT) in Japan. Sixty percent of the patients are supported over 2 years, with the longest support time being 10.5 years. EVAHEART® is a centrifugal pump that has demonstrated high pulse pressure, excellent hemocompatibility, and low pump thrombosis. Recently, the EVAHEART® 2 was developed, which incorporates a smaller pump housing and a unique tip-less inflow cannula design. EVAHEART® 2 is currently approved by the PMDA in Japan and is under clinical trial in the United States for BTT and extended support.
