Abstract
Left ventricular assist device is a well-established therapy in heart failure adults, but less in children. A 13-year-old-boy with severe left ventricular dysfunction did not improve under medical treatment. A HeartMate 3 (HM3) was implanted as a bridge to transplantation. Despite the size limitation, the HM3 shows promising results and our case supports its feasibility in children.
