Abstract

Systemic right ventricular failure is a common finding in patients with transposition of the great arteries. Some of these patients require ventricular assist device implantation. We describe the feasibility of HeartMate 3 [Abbott, Illinois, United States] implantation in a patient with transposition of the great arteries, high human leukocyte antigen sensitization, and severe pectus excavatum using a two-stage approach. Learning objectives: 1. To notice the challenges faced while implanting HeartMate 3 [Abbott, Illinois, United States] in patients with congenital heart disease and anatomical limitations. 2. To understand that despite the difficulties, HeartMate 3 implantation is possible, worthwhile, and sometimes the only choice in a patient with end-stage heart failure and congenital heart disease.
