Right ventricular failure (RVF) is a challenging problem after left ventricular device implantation, leading to considerable morbidity and mortality. When inotropic support is no longer adequate, a temporary right ventricular assist device is needed which often mandates reopening of the sternotomy for implant and explant. We describe our technique to percutaneously place a right-internal jugular cannula for extra-corporeal support.
