Mechanical circulatory support for the right ventricle in the setting of a left ventricular assist device.

Abstract

Right ventricular failure is a difficult problem to manage and typically carries a dismal prognosis. In the setting of post-left ventricular assist device implantation (LVAD), right ventricular dysfunction both in the early and late stages is of particularly high incidence and concern. There are currently no agreed upon preoperative algorithms to predict… (More)
