PMID:  25303797     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
This case report concerns a patient status post left ventricular assist device(LVAD) placement that was complicated by new onset severe aortic valve insufficiency. After almost two years with his device, the patient had a syncopal episode and had worsening aortic valve regurgitation on echocardiography. The patient underwent an aortic valve closure via the right second intercostal space, which represents a new approach to managing these patients surgically and avoiding repeat sternotomies and further right ventricle injury.
