Left Ventricular Assist Device Implantation in a Thrombosed Apical Aneurysm.
Clin Pract. 2021 Jul 01; 11(3):430-434.CP

Abstract

Left ventricular assist device implantation is a challenging procedure in the presence of a giant thrombosed aneurysm, and no standard surgical techniques are currently recommended in this setting. In this case, we report the successful implantation of a left ventricular assist device (HeartMate III) in a patient with a massive thrombosed apical aneurysm. The patient presented with extended antero-apical necrosis as a result of a delay in hospital admission for acute coronary syndrome due to the patient's concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.
