AbstractPurpose of the ReviewAlthough still a relatively new technology, long-term left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) for management of advanced heart failure is rapidly increasing. Initially designed as a bridge to transplant, these invasive devices are increasingly used as a destination therapy, creating unique and long-term infection risks. The aim of this comprehensive review is to highlight current evidence about the prevention, diagnosis, and management of LVAD-specific infections.Recent FindingsThere are two recent, major societal guidelines (The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation, 2017, a...
