Abstract

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation is frequently complicated by intraoperative and postoperative bleeding, particularly at the aortic anastomosis site. Many modifications of the anastomosis have been attempted. We describe a simple method to anastomose the LVAD outflow tract to the ascending aorta with minimal bleeding and a short anastomosis time.
