Abstract

The formation of pump thrombus after implantation of axial-flow ventricular assist devices has been described previously. We report a case of recurrent pump thrombus formation in a 63-year-old man who was bridged to heart transplantation with a MicroMed DeBakey ventricular assist device. He was treated with a low, dose-adjusted thrombolytic treatment protocol, and was subsequently successfully bridged to transplantation. Transient pump thrombus formation does not preclude safe long-term support with an axial-flow pump when diagnosed and treated appropriately.
