We report the pump exchange secondary to a detached bend relief sheath of a HeartMate II (Thoratec Corporation, Pleasanton, CA, USA) left ventricular assist device, consistent with previous Food and Drug Administration warnings. This report highlights a thrombectomy technique and reuse of the outflow graft during subcostal pump exchange in a patient with relative contraindications to repeat sternotomy.
