BACKGROUND Right heart failure (RHF) is a serious post-operative complication of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation, with significant morbidity and mortality. Many clinical, hemodynamic and laboratory variables have been shown to have prognostic value for appearance of RHF. We sought to investigate the incidence of new-onset right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) complicating the long-term use of LVADs. METHODS We retrospectively examined all patients supported with a continuous… CONTINUE READING
