Abstract

A 5 1/4 -year-old boy with idiopathic cardiomyopathy and rapidly worsening hemodynamic parameters underwent placement of a biventricular assist device as a bridge to transplantation. Direct anastomoses to both the aorta and pulmonary artery with Dacron grafts attached to Carmeda-coated tubing facilitated the support period. Inflow was provided by right atrial appendage and left ventricular apex cannulas. A centrifugal pump provided support for 2 days until a suitable donor was identified. The technique is simple, reproducible, and effective for patients with small body surface areas.
