Low stroke rate and few thrombo-embolic events after HeartMate II implantation under mild anticoagulation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Bleeding and thrombo-embolism are two of the most threatening adverse events associated with the use of continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) in the treatment of severe heart failure. We analysed our LVAD patients treated with the HeartMate II (HM II) device by following a low anticoagulation regimen. METHODS Between 2008 and… (More)
