Abstract

A left lateral thoracotomy was used for implantation of the continuous-flow MicroMed DeBakey left ventricular assist device in 12 patients with previous heart operations through a median sternotomy. This approach avoids reopening the chest through a median sternotomy and reduces the risk of bleeding and subsequent complications.
