The Heart of Innovation
 
04:05
The Heart of Innovation Gurcharan Gill It was undoubtedly the lowest point in Gurcharan Gill's life. The 75-year-old resident of Morgantown, West Virginia, could barely pull himself up out of bed. Walking the short distance to the bathroom was a feat as difficult as climbing Mt. Rainier. He couldn't even pick up a piece of paper if it dropped on the floor. His heart had given out on him and his prognosis for a normal life was nothing but a distant dream. Gurcharan's story is one that he describes as "an emotion-laden journey of restoring functions to a failing human heart and bringing hope for continued life." In 2003, Gurcharan was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer. After having his tonsils removed and undergoing extensive chemotherapy, he beat his cancer and looked forward to living a long and prosperous life. But the damaging effects of his chemotherapy regimen left his heart weak, and he suffered congestive heart failure. By the summer of 2008, he couldn't walk, exercise or enjoy simple activities with his family. His quality of life was terrible with frequent admissions to the hospital. His heart was only working at 10 percent efficiency, yet he was not considered a good candidate for a heart transplant because of his age. It was then that he received the heart-wrenching prognosis: he could only expect to live another three to six months. He turned to cardiologist Srinivas Murali, MD, FACC, FACP, Director of the Division of Cardiology at Allegheny General Hospital and Medical Director of The Gerald McGinnis Cardiovascular Institute. Dr. Murali began to search for alternatives that could prolong his patient's life while providing a permanent solution to his heart condition. In January 2009, the answer came in the form of a clinical trial of a relatively new device called the HeartMate II® left ventricular assist device (LVAD). As one of the few teaching hospitals in the region, Allegheny General Hospital is often on the leading edge of innovative new treatments and techniques offered through clinical trials. "Mr. Gill clearly only had weeks to live when we talked about the LVAD," explained Dr. Murali. "This would be his last treatment option, and he would have to live with it for the rest of his life." The LVAD is a mechanical pump that replaces the functions of the heart, allowing patients like Gurcharan to circulate blood from the left ventricle through the aorta to the rest of his body. The three-inch, one-pound pump is surgically placed inside the body directly below the heart and is linked by a wire to a small external battery that is continuously worn by the patient. A controller provides real-time information so Gurcharan can monitor his progress and be forewarned if the pump is not working properly. HeatMate II (LVAD) Stephen Bailey, MD, Director of the Division of Cardiac Surgery at AGH, was brought in to evaluate Gurcharan and to surgically implant the HeartMate II. Dr. Bailey had extensive experience with the new LVAD's predecessor, the HeartMate I®, which he had been implanting for five years in other patients at AGH. The new device promised more favorable outcomes and lessened complications for a larger patient population that can benefit from implantation. "These patients have a 70 to 80 percent risk of mortality within a year without the device," explained Dr. Bailey. "The new HeartMate II device is a form of destination therapy, meaning it is not a temporary fix but a final solution to a very serious problem." Learn More at www.wpahs.org/healthlinks
