  Purpose

The objective of this pivotal study is to assess the safety and efficacy of the EVAHEART LVAS as a bridge-to-transplant for subjects with end stage heart failure. Subjects will be followed for 180 days after the EVAHEART LVAS implant or until cardiac transplant or explant for recovery (+ 60 days or discharge). If after 180 days post-implant the subject has not received a cardiac transplant or the device has not been explanted, the subject will continue to be followed monthly.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival [ Time Frame: 180 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Survival to cardiac transplant or device explant for recovery (+ 60 days or discharge) or survival to 180 days after implantation of the originally implanted device


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in 6-minute walk test [ Time Frame: Baseline versus POD 30, 90, 180, 360 and every 180 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in KCCQ and EuroQol [ Time Frame: Baseline versus POD 30, 90, 180, 360 and every 180 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in neurocognitive function [ Time Frame: Baseline/POD 30 versus POD 90, 180, and 360 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Incidence of adverse events, serious adverse events and UADEs [ Time Frame: Implant through transplant or explant for recovery (+60 days or discharge) or 180 days on device; then duration of device support, up to 360 days (approximate) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Peri-operative complications and any failure to successfully implant the device.

    All adverse events occurring during the acute and chronic phase of the study (frequency, severity, duration, sequelae and relationship to device).

    All adverse events occurring during the extension phase (frequency, severity, duration, sequelae and relationship to device).


  • Incidence of all device failures and device malfunctions [ Time Frame: Implant through transplant or explant for recovery (+60 days or discharge) or 180 days on device; then duration of device support, up to 360 days(approximate) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Survival to transplant [ Time Frame: Implant through transplant, up to 360 days (approximate) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • NYHA functional class [ Time Frame: Baseline versus POD 30, 90, 180, 360, and every 180 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Post-transplant or post-explant survival [ Time Frame: 60 days and 1 year post-transplant or post-explant ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
