Abstract

In this report we describe the first successful bridge to myocardial recovery with the HeartWare HVAD. Assessment for explantation included serial echocardiography, hemodynamic monitoring, metabolic analysis and manipulation of pump speed, both at rest and during exercise. A protocol for assessing the degree of myocardial recovery without stopping the device is described.
