I have heard actually on this site that the Barostim therapy has been authorized by the FDA and is now available to patients with HF. I spoke to my cardiologist and he doesn't have a lot of information about it other than it is a clinical trial and to qualify for it you need to be basically dying.
I have had my Biventriculator for a year and a half now and my EF still at 20-25%, my heart is enlarged a bit and I think I will need to persue this treatment, I am trying to find out if this new treatment will help increase my EF as I heard it would.
Anyone here know more than this about it? If you do please share what you know.
Thank you all
You know you're wired when...
You fondly named your implanted buddy.
My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
