Mechanical Circulatory Support or MCS is when a device is able to help your heart function when it is not working at optimal levels on its own. At Houston Heart, we offer the most advanced technology and heart support options for patients when they need ventricular assist devices. We also have the capability to utilize EMCO whenever necessary for circulatory and respiratory support assistance during heart surgery. Speak with your provider about VAD and whether this is an option for you.
