  • Figure 1
    Plain AP thorax radiography

    Plain thorax radiography in a 56-year-old man after VAD system implantation shows the pump and the integrated inflow cannula (straight black arrow) overlying the left ventricle and its driveline (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: Plain radiographic studies; Procedure: Arterial access; Special Focus: Foreign bodies;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT axial images
     

    CT axial images obtained with mediastinal window settings show the VAD pump (black arrow) attached to the ventricle with the outflow graft (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Contrast agent-intravenous; Special Focus: Foreign bodies;

    CT axial shows the outflow graft (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiac; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Foreign bodies;

    CT axial images shows the outflow graft (white arrow) anastomosed to the ascending aorta.
