Impact of Left-Ventricular Assist Device–Related Complications on Posttransplant Graft Survival
The authors queried the UNOS heart transplantation database to determine if LVAD device-related complications (DRCs) were associated with worse postoperative graft survival. The 5 categories of DRCs were as follows: device thrombosis, infection, device malfunction, life-threatening arrhythmias, and others.
Results: None of the 5 categories of DRCs was associated with worse graft survival on multivariate analysis.
