Nikolai Ivanovich, 52, suffered from constant heartaches, fatigue and weakness. He had shortness of breath when climbing stairs, was always in a bad mood and easily lost his temper. On examination he was diagnosed with left ventricular hypertrophy. It was a matter of life and death.
A month ago Sputnik LVAD was implanted into Nikolai Ivanovich, and heart failure symptoms have disappeared. He now lives an active life enjoying each day of it: meeting friends, taking strolls and working in the garden.
