We present our technique for the implantation of the Jarvik 2000 left ventricular assist device (Jarvik Heart, Inc, New York, NY) without cardiopulmonary bypass by the induction of rapid pacing that allows the insertion of the apical device into the left ventricle, minimizing blood loss and surgical complications. Although the off-pump implantation of left ventricular assist devices is not new, our experience of rapid pacing has not been previously reported to our knowledge.
