Individuals with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) are at a great risk for heart failure, and the underlying anatomic features are important predictors of heart failure. As the ACHD population grows older, multiple events, including years of an altered physiology, the neurohormonal cascade, and many still unknown, culminate in ventricular failure. Surgical device therapy is an effective method in supporting patients with heart failure. Ventricular assist devices have been used with success in bridging ACHD patients to heart transplantation or destination therapy.
