Intermacs Database

The STS Intermacs Database is a North American registry for the clinical outcomes of patients who receive an FDA-approved mechanical circulatory support (MCS) device to treat advanced heart failure. It was established in 2005 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham as a joint effort among the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and others. 

The Intermacs Database includes longitudinal data for the life of a patient with an MCS device. Approximately 36,000 patients currently are enrolled at more than 200 sites.
