<h4>Abstract</h4>Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation is increasingly utilized in patients with advanced heart failure and morbid obesity. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) can facilitate weight loss in this population and can ultimately change the pharmacokinetics of heart failure therapeutics. In this study, we aimed to explore the changes in cardiovascular ... Read more >>

Sophia J Fanelli, Mohammed Elzeneini, Lauren E Meece, Ahmad Mahmoud, Eric I Jeng, Neil Harris, Mustafa M Ahmed,

<h4>Background and aim</h4>The role of thromboelastography (TEG) in managing antiplatelet therapy (APT) in left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) is controversial. Our aim was to determine whether removal of TEG from an LVAD-specific APT protocol reduced late-onset bleeding without increasing thromboembolic complications.<h4>Methods</h4>We performed a single-center, retrospective cohort study including all recipients ...
