Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a successful PEG tube insertion in a patient with an LVAD. Adequate prolonged nutritional support was provided. PEG placement in patients with an implantable or paracorporeal LVAD may be possible but present additional concerns. We believe that PEG placement should be cpnsidered in patients with an LVAD with swallowing difficulties or who are debilitated are not meeting their caloric requirements.
