Background. Ventricular assist devices (VADs) are alternative approaches to medical treatment in patients with acute or chronic heart failure. The goal of this study was to compare an anesthetic approach in patients undergoing implantation of a VAD with (on pump) or without (off-pump) cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) through left thoracotomy.
