A 45-year-old male with dilatative cardiomyopathy was supported with an Incor (Berlin-Heart AG) axial flow magnetically levitated bearings pump. Due to constant anemization in late follow-up, gastrointestinal bleeding was suspected and a PillCam™ Capsule Endoscopy (Given Imaging) was performed. No interference between the devices was detected and full small bowel visualization was achieved.
