A Modified Grading System for Early Right Heart Failure Matches Functional Outcomes and Survival After Left Ventricular Assist Devices.

E Wilson Grandin, Gregory S Troutman, Arune A Gulati, Payman Zamani, Jeremy A Mazurek, Pavan Atluri, J Eduardo Rame,

Early right heart failure (ERHF) remains a common complication after continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (cf-LVAD) and has been associated with increased mortality. The specific criteria used to define ERHF remain somewhat arbitrary. Correlating the degree of ERHF with outcomes after LVAD could inform a more clinically relevant definition. We ... Read more >>
