Abstract

Complications associated with long-term left ventricular assist device (LVAD) use may require pump exchange due to device thrombosis or thromboembolism. Minimally invasive off-pump procedures represent an advantageous alternative to standard full sternotomy exchanges and those performed with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. By mitigating surgical invasion and trauma to the central chest, the potential for post-operative bleeding, transfusions and complications can be reduced. This case report describes the successful off-pump exchange of a HeartWare LVAD via left re-do-thoracotomy with the re-use of the original outflow graft.
