Abstract

We previously reported a series of 5 patients with advanced heart failure and aortic insufficiency (AI) who underwent concomitant left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) closure at the time of continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (CF-LVAD) implantation. Although this technique of treating AI has been shown to be effective in the short term, its long-term durability has not been well studied. Here, we report the long-term outcomes of two patients with severe AI who underwent LVOT closure at the time of CF-LVAD implantation. Each of the two patients survived for more than 6 years without any complications related to LVOT closure.
