The Free-D wireless power system, developed by Dr. Pramod Bonde of the Yale Department of Surgery, successfully wirelessly powers an implanted heart assistance device, creating much hope and promise for heart disease patients.

However, Dr. Bonde, who joined Yale Medical Group in September as surgical director of Mechanical Circulatory Support, also specializes in LVAD surgery as a "destination therapy," or permanent solution.
Before coming to Yale, Dr. Bonde practiced at Johns Hopkins Hospital and UPMC, where he accrued an extensive record of outstanding clinical outcomes in LVAD implantation and such cardiac surgeries as bypass surgery, valve repairs and aortic surgeries.
Father Whittel is a patient who, from a medical point of view, had a very sick heart," says Dr. Bonde.
Dr. Bonde discussed the case extensively with fellow heart failure cardiologists.
The device, which Dr. Bonde says will function for several years, essentially takes over the work Whittel's ailing heart can no longer do.
He still has months of physical and cardiac therapy ahead of him, as well as follow-up visits to monitor his stability and endurance. But soon after the procedure he embraced his physical therapy with such gusto that he earned himself an early release from the hospital. He's happy to talk about the mile-long walk he recently took on an even grade and his shorter strolls in his family's hilly neighborhood.
"I'm learning that I have to change some of my daily activities because of the equipment," he says.
Pramod Bonde, MD, is hoping to provide patients with better LVADs in the future. He has developed a wireless micro-LVAD that switches on only when the patient needs it, much like a pacemaker does. For patients whose hearts have the potential to recover, this would allow the actual heart muscle to do the work when it is able, strengthening it. But the LVAD would serve as a failsafe, switching on should the heart fail to pump.
This lower impact device would be appropriate to implant in patients in the early stages of heart failure-long before they get to the dangerous and debilitating stage that the Rev. Joseph Whittel reached.
Dr. Bonde has been watching LVADs and their batteries shrink and improve over the years. In 2008, he teamed up with Joshua Smith, a professor of computer science and electrical engineering at the University of Washington. Together they developed a prototype of the wireless device that has worked in the lab, but he will not be able to provide it for patients until it is commercially available. Dr. Bonde says the wireless pump could be implanted with minimally invasive "keyhole-type" surgery.
Dr. Bonde is looking forward to the day when the Bonde-Smith model would eliminate those problems.

Yale physicians perform ECMO-assisted VT ablations [cached]

Pramod Bonde, MD

Pramod Bonde, MD
(November 2012) Yale physicians successfully performed what they believe were Connecticut's first hybrid ECMO-assisted VT ablations-using a procedure that burns the tissue that caused the patients' irregular heart rhythms.
Yale routinely performs ablations for ventricular tachycardia (VT)-a potentially life-threatening fast heart rhythm that originates in one of the ventricles of the heart. However, in three hybrid procedures performed in October, an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine, or ECMO, was used to provide temporary support of heart/lung function for patients whose weak hearts would have otherwise made the procedure extremely risky.
"This is important for patients whose hearts are too weak to withstand an ablation, and who must endure repeated shocks from their defibrillators as a result," says cardiac surgeon Pramod Bonde, MD, director of Yale's ECMO program, who worked on the procedures alongside electrophysiologist Joseph Akar, MD, PhD.
"The ablation procedure itself can be quite taxing to their hearts," says Dr. Bonde.
Dr. Bonde says the development of Yale's adult ECMO program in the past year as a temporary measure for patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome, acute heart failures, cath lab emergencies and other serious events laid the foundation for the successful hybrid procedures.
"We've matured the adult ECMO program and are having very good outcomes, and this procedure is an extension of that," he says.
