Abstract
Despite the benefit of the drugs acting on neuro-humoral activation and cardiac resynchronization therapy, some patients will end in a severe refractory form of heart failure: advanced heart failure. The only therapeutic options with a positive impact on mortality and quality of life are heart transplantation and permanent left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The significant technological improvements of the past 20 years lead to a reduction of the complications associated with these devices, which now allow their use not only during the waiting period preceding heart transplantation (bridge to transplant), but also as a durable therapeutic option (destination therapy).
