BACKGROUND Continuous-flow devices have become the standard of care for mechanical circulatory support for end-stage heart failure patients because of improved survival and durability. The effects of these devices, such as the HeartMate II (HMII) left ventricular assist device (LVAD), on right ventricular (RV) function have not been evaluated in detail. This study evaluated the incidence of RV failure, alterations in RV function, severity of tricuspid regurgitation (TR), and cardiac… CONTINUE READING
