Abstract

Left Ventricular Assistance Devices (LVAD) is an increasingly used option for advanced heart failure patients on waiting list for cardiac transplantation (C-Tx). LVAD recipients are prone to thromboembolic complications caused by blood activation and systemic inflammation. Even though similar survival has been observed with or without LVAD at the time of transplantation, particular LVAD-related morbidity may occur. Herein we describe two unique cases of acute intra cavitary cardiac graft thrombosis and fulminant heart failure, occurring peroperatively, after weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, in heart transplant recipients who had benefited of an LVAD as bridge to transplantation.
