Bi-ventricular (Bi-V) mechanical circulatory support is commonly used as a bridge to cardiac transplant. However, the optimal strategy is unknown. We examined the outcomes, as well as the costs in the use of Bi-V support as a bridge to cardiac transplant. From 2001 to 2014, three different Bi-V support strategies were utilized: 1) Para-corporeal ventricular assist device (PVAD-2001-2006), 2) Heartmate II left ventricular assist device in conjunction with a temporary CentriMag right ventricular… CONTINUE READING
