Fluid Around the PumpWed, 06/13/2018 - 1:47PM
Hi, I have had my Lvad for seven years. Recently I have developed fluid around the pump they removed one and 1/3 liters by aspiration however after a month it came back. I have had a surgery done at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston but the procedure was not successful and two months later the fluid is coming back. Has anyone else had this problem that you know of? Is there a remedy that you know of? The surgeons said that this problem has not been seen before by the doctors in Boston. They say I am the first one, lucky me. Please let me know if you know of any solution.
