Left ventricular assist devices are (LVAD) used for circulatory support in patients with end-stage heart failure. Hemolysis/pump dysfunction is a well-known complication of this therapy with various etiologic causes. A small proportion of these complications are caused by outflow graft obstructions; this complication has received little attention in the scientific literature. Herein, we provide a comprehensive overview of the role of the LVAD outflow graft obstruction and its treatment options.
