Abstract

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy is a well accepted and effective strategy to treat advanced heart failure. The miniaturized third-generation centrifugal pumps HeartWare HVAD (Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland) and HeartMate 3 (Abbott, Illinois, USA) are the two most commonly implanted systems in the contemporary era. Their design has allowed clinicians to pioneer several alternate and less invasive implantation techniques to tackle a broad spectrum of clinical scenarios. A brief review and discussion of alternative surgical techniques for both inflow and outflow cannula insertion, in the contemporary LVAD surgery era, are herein reported.
