Sharp Memorial Hospital Tests New Heart Pump
KPBS

There are few options for the estimated 150,000 Americans with end-stage heart disease. One of them is being tested at San Diego’s Sharp Memorial Hospital.

Sharp is involved in a nationwide clinical trial to evaluate the performance of a left ventricular assist device called the HeartMate 3. It helps the heart pump blood in patients whose hearts are too weak to do it on their own.
