Abstract

In up to 50 % of patients undergoing continuous flow, axial pump, left-ventricular and assist device (LVAD) placement, concomitant procedures are performed. The underlying lesions have a broad spectrum of severity, complexity, and impact on clinical outcomes. This review describes the concomitant lesions often encountered with LVAD implantation and clinical relevance of their repair.
