In conclusion, we report the case of a young woman with GCM, who received a BiVAD, underwent a heart transplant, and has since done well.
Early physical therapy started on the second postoperative day after BIVAD transplantation resulted in significant increases in heart rate and respiratory rate immediately after the treatments, but decreased significantly within 5 minutes and approached pretreatment values indicating the safety of our intervention as a result of normal physiologic responses to physical activity.
Two TandemHearts were used in a BIVAD configuration to support the patient.
