Abstract

Heparin-induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a life threatening complication of anticoagulatory therapy with Heparin. We report on a 35 year old patient suffering from cardiomyopathy for whom a biventricular assist device (Berlin Heart) became necessary. This patient developed a HIT Type II postoperatively and was treated with Orgaran, an effective Heparin substitute in a patient with HIT Type II. After 213 days with the biventricular assist device our patient successfully underwent orthotopic heart transplantation with Orgaran. This medication can also be administered to assist device patients and can also be used as an anticoagulant during cardiopulmonary bypass.
