Hope for Our Smallest Heart Patients

Riley at IU Health celebrates a decade of helping patients with the Berlin Heart.

Severe heart failure is scary at any age, but it can be especially difficult for children. Thanks to the Berlin Heart, a mechanical heart support system designed especially for children, pediatric heart patients have the same access to lifesaving technology as adults.

The Berlin Heart works by taking over full or partial function of a child’s damaged heart, restoring normal blood flow in patients suffering from severe heart failure. As a last resort of these patients, the Berlin Heart allows time for the heart to heal or to buy time until the patient can receive a heart transplant.

Riley at IU Health has a long history with the Berlin Heart device and played a key role in seeking FDA approval to import and implant this mechanical heart support system designed especially for children. Dr. Mark Turrentine, director of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery at Riley at IU Health and a professor of Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine has implanted nine Berlin Heart devices in Riley patients over the past decade.

Learn more about the Berlin Heart and the Cardiology Department at Riley at IU Health, the only Indiana hospital ranked in the top 25 national programs for Cardiology and Heart Surgery by U.S. News & World Report.
