Saving kids waiting for transplants
ST. LOUIS, Mo.
It doesn't look like much, but a day out and about is big for 11 year old Jacque Fair. Last summer, Jacque and her mom found out she had heart failure and needed a transplant.
The pump is implanted in the heart and attaches to a battery pack outside the body. It takes blood out of the left ventricle and pumps it into the aorta helping the heart function when it's too weak to do so on its own.
The device is small enough to be used in kids and it is portable so patients don't have to stay in the hospital.
"It's a beautiful thing to let a child go home while they're still in heart failure," Mehegan said.
Jacque says the device has given her freedom.
"If I didn't have this, I'd probably be in the hospital, not allowed to do anything and taped up to the wall," Jacque said.
She's looking forward to her transplant, but says she's happy she can still be a kid while she waits.
Patients have to be at least 65 pounds to receive the device. The HeartWare is a left ventricular assist device, commonly called an LVAD. However, sometimes the heart of a child may not function normally. Heart failure occurs in adults because of the effects of smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and bad heart valves. It can occur in newborns, infants, toddlers, and teenagers for other reasons.
Over circulation failure: It occurs when blood mixes inside the heart due to a congenital heart defect. About one percent of all newborn infants will have some type of structural heart defect. In some of the defects, there are holes between the right and left chambers inside the heart and because of these holes, the blue and red bloods mix inside the heart. A defect of blood vessels in the head or other body parts can cause similar mixing of the blue and red blood but outside the heart. Also, abnormal heart valves can cause heart failure. Rarely, a strep throat infection can cause damage to normal heart valve, causing them to leak as well. Finally, anemia can also result in heart failure. This can be due to a virus infection that damages otherwise normal heart muscles or from problems with the coronary arteries that occur from birth. Teenagers and older children may complain of becoming tired quickly,ugg classic deco boots, especially if a virus has caused heart muscle damage. Certain drugs,ugg 1873 bailey button, some necessary to treat other medical problems like cancer, can also damage the heart. Rarely, severe chest trauma may damage the heart. Children with muscular dystrophy may eventually also develop problems with their heart. In other cases, the heart muscle fails to function normally and the heart becomes an inefficient pump. Now, kids are receiving that option too. "Application of this technology in children may eventually allow physicians to 'defer' a decision on transplantation and give a child's native heart a better chance for recovery," Dr. Canter, director of the heart transplant program at St. Louis Children's Hospital, was quoted as saying. "It also allows patients with end stage heart failure who are not heart transplant candidates to have effective therapy." It is believed that fewer than ten children's hospitals in the nation have used implantable ventricular assist devices. HeartWare is a disk like device that is sewn into the heart's left ventricle that pumps blood when the heart is too weak to do so on its own. It is connected by a lead through the abdominal wall to a controller and battery pack that fit into a small handbag and weighs less than four pounds, making it possible for a child to be discharged from the hospital.
