"Though heart surgery is constantly evolving, its aim has never changed, and that is to improve patient outcomes.  Previously, LVAD implantations in Singapore were rare and the heart assist devices were bulky.  Today, with advances in medical expertise and more sophisticated devices, patients can improve their quality of life significantly with LVAD implantations."
