Abstract

As a result of the improved survival of patients with heart failure (HF) and the overall rise in the prevalence of HF,1 the number of patients in advanced (stage D) HF continues to increase, thus exceeding the limited availability of donor organs by a wide margin.2 Initially used primarily as a bridge to heart transplantation, mechanical circulatory support is now increasingly offered as a destination therapy to patients with advanced HF in clinical deterioration who are not candidates for transplantation. Improvement in survival to 80% at 1-year postimplantation3 has steadily followed the development of new technologies such as the continuous-flow pump, which now encompasses 99% of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs),3 and improvements in patient and device management. Far from being a panacea, mechanical circulatory support is still fraught with challenges. Among them, post-LVAD right ventricular failure (RVF) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality.
