Abstract

The role of mechanical circulatory support for cardiopulmonary failure is expanding. Anticoagulation in the setting of static blood, hypercoagulable states, extracorporeal circuits, and surgery presents an intricate and delicate balance. We present a patient with large, biventricular thrombi during and succeeding biventricular mechanical support. Management of the thrombi and device selection in this patient are discussed.
