OBJECTIVE The HeartMate II (Thoratec Corp, Pleasanton, Calif) continuous-flow left ventricular assist device has emerged as the standard of care for patients with advanced heart failure. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and early effectiveness of concomitant tricuspid valve procedures in patients undergoing implantation of a HeartMate II device. METHODS From February 2007 to April 2010, 83 patients underwent HeartMate II left ventricular assist device implantation. Of… CONTINUE READING
