March 2019: The doctors diagnosed pneumonia and an additional drop in heart function, which caused organ failure. Andreas was connected to a heart-lung machine (ECMO = Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) and a biventricular EXCOR® VAD was implanted. After 10 months on EXCOR®, he received the long awaited and life-saving message – a donor heart is finally available!
After a successful rehab and daily training, Andreas is back home.
Berlin Heart wishes Andreas the very best for his future!
