LVAD anchor - what is everyone using?

We are having problems getting the anchor that my husband has been using since he received his LVAD. He’s using the Hollister 9781. What is everyone else using? Maybe there’s an alternative that is more readily available for us. Thank you for your help with our search.

Hello Joan, I don't use the anchor that comes in the kit.  It was too tedious.   I get the velcro MC Johnson, they send separate order.  It just folds over or under the driveline Been using this anchor since had LVAD almost 7 years now.  It works for me.   Good luck!!

This is what I use to keep my driveline secure, works like a charm!!
