Optimizing Anticoagulation Therapy in Left Ventricular Assist Device Patients

This is a mechanical device that is implanted in the chest to help the heart pump blood. It is used for patients with advanced heart failure who are waiting for a heart transplant or who are not eligible for a transplant. Anticoagulation therapy plays a crucial role in the management of patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). The goal of anticoagulation therapy in LVAD patients is to maintain a balance between preventing thrombosis (clot formation) while avoiding bleeding complications.
