Management for continuous flow left ventricular assist device thrombosis often relies on speculation of individual clinical risk factors and integration of indirect evidence for device dysfunction. There are no comprehensive guidelines for treatment of this serious complication, and most of our current knowledge comes from anecdotal experience or observational study. More data on effective treatment, both with aggressive pharmacologic and device-based interventions, are needed for improving our understanding of mechanisms driving device thrombosis and for preventing future events. We present a case of LVAD thrombosis with emphasis on recognition and treatment of acute pump thrombosis, and discuss a potentially novel strategy using percutaneous mechanical circulatory support for pump salvage.
