Abstract

A need persists for implantable devices that provide support for the failing right ventricle. The anatomy of the right ventricle presents unique challenges at the time of right ventricular assist device implant. We describe a technique for right ventricular outflow tract cannulation that minimizes the risk of right ventricular assist device inflow cannula obstruction and right ventricular compression.
