Abstract

Pump thrombosis is a dreaded complication of long-term implantable ventricular assist devices. No guidance exists regarding the diagnosis and management of this entity despite its significant morbidity. After considerable thought and deliberation, a group of leading investigators in the field of mechanical support propose an algorithm for the diagnosis and management of this vexing entity based on clinical symptoms and serologic and imaging studies.
