Percutaneous Intervention for Left Ventricular Assist Device Outflow Obstruction.
Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are used to support patients with advanced systolic heart failure (HF). These patients might develop LVAD dysfunction and consequent HF symptoms. Occasionally, outflow graft obstruction is responsible for LVAD dysfunction. Here, we describe percutaneous techniques to repair the outflow graft and avoid re-sternotomy.
