PMID:  24373756     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
Although serious complications are becoming more rare with continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices such as the Heartmate II (Thoratec Corp, Pleasanton, CA), this case series discusses 2 patients with symptoms of bleeding and syncopal ventricular tachycardia associated with an outflow graft bend relief disconnection, which can be diagnosed by simple chest roentgenography.
