PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review recent insights on right-ventricular failure (RVF) following left-ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation. RECENT FINDINGS Even with the availability of new generation continuous mechanical assist devices, RVF after implantation of LVAD is still associated with high morbidity and mortality. Recent studies have tried to better define the risk of RVF using combined clinical scores and measures of right-ventricular function or strain. Small exploratory studies… CONTINUE READING
