Summary, in English

Patients with biventricular assist devices (BIVAD) are severely critically ill compared with patients who receive left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support alone and portend a significant risk for greater adverse events including pump thrombosis (PT). Current approaches to treat PT are limited to LVAD with variable outcomes depending on the management strategy implemented. Moreover the management of PT in patients with BIVAD support, specifically to the right ventricular assist device (RVAD), is unknown. We describe the first care series to date on the management of PT in patients with durable right ventricular assist device and their outcomes.
