Customer:

Hello, Thank you for your question. I will try my best to help you with your questions. I need to ask few questions before first.

Customer:

Do you have his echo report if yes then please share it with me

Customer:

Unfortunately if right heart is weak then we cannot put heart pumps

Customer:

because heart pumps are placed in the left heart and they need at least moderate function of right heart

Customer:

if right heart is weak then these pumps are useless.

Customer:

I hope this answers your questions.
