Abstract

We report a simple technique of LVAD outflow anastomosis as patch closure of a standard aortotomy during left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implant. Benefits are a single aortotomy, a low graft leaving ample native aorta for transplant, a wide-open LVAD outflow, and excellent aortic valve exposure.
