Abstract

Left ventricular assist device thrombosis is a detrimental complication that, if not properly diagnosed and treated, can lead to low output syndrome and death. When ongoing thrombus formation is caused by inappropriate anticoagulation, timely identification is possible, and could perhaps be the key to successful treatment.
