In patients with advanced heart failure being considered for mechanical circulatory support (MCS), some degree of structural heart disease must often be considered in operative planning. The desire to surgically correct these structural lesions to improve long-term outcomes must be balanced against the goal of simplifying device implantation to improve short-term outcomes. This chapter discusses the rationale, approach, and outcomes related to adding concomitant cardiac surgical interventions during MCS device implantation.
