Tufts Medical Center

This page highlights news and new technology from Tufts Medical Center in Boston. The hospital is a luminary center and also a pioneer of new cardiovascular technologies and techniques in the areas of hemodynamic support, transcatheter structural heart treatments including transcatheter valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter mitral calve repair and replacement, transcatheter LAA occlusion, heart failure interventions and complex PCI. The center has also been at the forefront of how to improve mortality in cardiogenic shock patients with the Cardiogenic Shock Working Group.

Tufts Medical Center created a heart failure team approach to care for its patients. The program includes an interventional heart failure fellowship program, where interventional cardiologists learn more advanced care, as show here with an ECMO procedure being performed in a cath lab at Tufts. The interventional cardiologists learn how to better care for heart failure patients and interface with surgeons, intensivists and others on the HF care team. The operator is Nevin Kapur.
