In the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) population, right ventricular (RV) failure represents a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. It is unclear whether hemodynamic monitoring with the implantable CardioMEMS system can improve outcomes within this population. This case report highlights two patients in our clinic who had CardioMEMS implanted after LVAD, enabling us to modify their medical regimens remotely and more frequently in the management of their RV failure.
