The use of aspirin at a dose of 81 -325 mg daily in patients with a durable, continuous flow LVAD had been a Class I, LOE C recommendation in the 2010 and 2013 versions of the ISHLT LVAD guidelines/consensus reviews despite no prospective, controlled data to allow for a precise assessment of its role in the prevention of, or contribution to, hemocompatability related adverse events.  Since then, several retrospective reviews of aspirin use in clinical practice have led to adjustments in recommendations based on device type. This presentations aims to  present information to help guide the future use of antiplatelets in patients with durable continuous flow LVADs.
