Abstract

The Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD) is considered a good way to improve survival and quality of life in patients with end stage left ventricular failure compared to the optimal medical therapy alone. Long-term survival of patients receiving LVADs may be complicated by different cardiac (heart failure and arrhythmia) and extra-cardiac diseases: Bleeding, infections, and thrombosis, many of which could require different intervention. Endoventricular thrombolysis may have a pivotal role in LVAD thrombosis. The coexisting risk of angiodysplasia gastrointestinal bleeding, often elevated in patient with this type of non pulsatile ventricular assistance device should be considered by single case.
