Core Tip Ventricular assist devices are indispensable parts of end-stage heart failure management. Severe hemolysis can be a significant complication, leading to increased mortality and worse outcomes. Incidence varies (5%-18%) depending on different hemolysis definitions and among different ventricular assist device generations. Main pathogenetic mechanisms include increased red blood cells shear stress or underlying device thrombosis. Personalized approach is crucial in the absence of certain algorithms for the management of this complication. Close clinical and laboratory monitoring in combination with imaging examinations could play a role in revealing the underlying cause. Treatment includes pharmacological (antithrombotic treatment) or surgical interventions.
