Saving a heart that has a lot to live for

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.

Dr. Pramod Bonde is a Board Certified Cardiac Surgeon. He is dedicated to improving the quality and longevity of his patients afflicted with heart disease. In his eyes, you are not a patient but a person who deserves to be treated with compassion and dignity to facilitate a return to your family to spend a meaningful and happy life following heart surgery.
Dr. Bonde was greatly influenced by the loss of a dear one to the sufferings of heart failure; it was a turning point in his formative years as a young surgeon that made him pursue heart surgery. His desire to help and heal is driven by that quest so that no other human being has to suffer the debilitating effects of heart disease.
Dr. Bonde is passionate about the treatment of men and women limited by angina and shortness of breath due to coronary artery disease or valve disease and those with end stages of heart failure. He specializes in coronary bypass, valve repair/replacements, and treatment of aortic diseases. His special focus is on heart transplantation and artificial heart pump therapy for people waiting for heart transplant and for those who are not transplant candidates.

"My primary interest is to help heart failure patients recover, and they can only recover if they are not tethered to a battery or external power supply so they can exercise and train their heart to recover," said Dr. Pramod Bonde, a heart surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

...
"The potential for wireless power in medical fields goes far beyond powering artificial hearts," Dr. Bonde said.

The pump was developed by Josh Smith, associate professor of computer science and electrical engineering at the University of Washington, and Pramod Bonde, a heart surgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Smith and Bonde’s new wireless pump gets around problems such as aligning the power transmitter with the artificial heart by modifying the way power is sent and received.

...
The new system devised the two researchers is an inductive system that adjusts the frequency and other parameters as the distance or orientation between the transmitter and receive coils changes, allowing for flexible yet efficient wireless power of medium distances. Smith and Bonde envision a whole-home system in which a person can move freely without wearing a power supply.
