INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous left ventricular assist devices are an important tool in the management of patients with severe cardiogenic shock. Limited experiences concerning vascular complications after long term implantation of these devices exist. We report on a large arteriovenous fistula after placement of a left ventricular assist device, which has not been described in the literature. The arteriovenous fistula was of clinical relevance because it represented a supplementary cardiac burden in a patient with impaired left ventricular function after a severe myocardial infarction.
