Treatments

At Mount Sinai Heart, we offer a range of the latest treatments for patients with heart failure. We have a team of dedicated cardiologists, nurse practitioners, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, coordinators and other staff all focused on delivering high quality care to this select group of patients.

  • Optimization of medical therapy: aggressive approach to establishing and titrating medications for heart failure.
  • Corrective Heart Surgery: to improve heart failure symptoms and outcomes
  • Defibrillators: to improve length of life related to lethal cardiac arrhythmias
  • Cardiac Resynchronization Devices (pacemakers): pacemaker wires to Re-synchronize the rhythm of the heart to improve the pump function of the heart and mortality rates.
  • Implantable Monitoring Devices: devices that assist in the ongoing management of congestive heart failure
  • Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs): Surgically implanted pumps designed for cardiac support as a bridge to transplant or ultimately as definitive destination therapy. 
  • Novel Pharmaceutical Agents: medications still in research phase intended to improve quality and quantity of life for patients with heart failure.
  • Cardiac Transplantation: Heart transplantation is the definitive treatment for advanced heart failure which cannot be controlled with medical or device therapy.  Heart transplant relies on the donation of a heart and subsequent surgical implantation into the recipient. Not all patients with heart failure are suitable for heart transplantation; potential patients require extensive testing and screening.
