In patients with acute heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) needing urgent cardiac surgery, bivalirudin is recommended as a first-line strategy for intraoperative anticoagulation. However, due to the unique elimination process of bivalirudin, careful adjustment of the perfusion and surgical strategy is mandatory as blood stasis in the circuit or prolonged interruption of areas or compartments containing blood from the systemic circulation may result in thrombus formation. We report here a modified surgical strategy for the implantation of the HeartWare™ left ventricular assist device, which avoids prolonged disconnection of the blood-filled device from the systemic blood flow, so that bivalirudin can be safely used as anticoagulant.
