MOMEMTUM 3 Clinical Trials
As part of its ongoing commitment to provide excellent care for heart failure patients in Tennessee and the Southeastern U.S., Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute recently became the first medical center in the state to implant the HeartMate 3, a novel mechanical circulatory support device.

Vanderbilt Heart is currently one of 60 select centers chosen to evaluate the HeartMate 3, a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), as part of the MOMENTUM 3 trial, which is expected to enroll more than 1,000 patients nationwide. Story Link
