Abstract

With the rising incidence of end stage heart failure and the stagnating pool of donors, left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy has emerged as a bridge to recovery/transplant or as destination therapy. However, the number of patients who actually undergo device explant as a result of ventricular recovery happens to be highly variable at the present time [1,2]. Ventricular recovery is a complex phenomenon influenced by several factors such as the etiology/duration of heart failure, extent of scarring and fibrosis of the myocardium at the time of implantation and adjunct medical management protocol tailored for recovery immediately post device implantation.
