Abstract

Temporary right ventricular (RV) support is considered during insertion of a left ventricular assist device in patients who are at risk of right ventricular dysfunction. There are several circuits and cannulation strategies available. Here, we report an effective and safe method for achieving RV support using the RotaFlow (Maquet) extracorporeal pump with inflow and outflow grafts placed through small opposing lateral thoracotomy incisions.
