Abstract

Six months after implantation of a wearable Novacor N100 left ventricular assist device, a 47-year-old patient developed a swelling that overlay the body of sternum. Computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a pseudoaneurysm of the Novacor outflow graft. The patient was taken back to surgery and the diagnosis was confirmed at operation. Repair was performed by direct sutures via right anterolateral thoracotomy, under deep hypothermia and low flow technique. The postoperative course was uneventful.
