Ventricular Assist Device (VAD)

My brother is considering his options for the VAD.  He now has a 2 lead defibrillator and it was suggested by his doctor that he get a 3 lead defibrillator.  It was also suggested by his doctor that he should go on the heart transplant list.  In the interim he suggested to his doctor that he would like to try the VAD.  His doctor said yes, that is an option.
Should he be considering the Ventricular Assist Device as his next step?
