A 39-year-old male with a history of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy underwent a HeartMate 3 (Abbott Laboratories) implantation. Within an hour of implantation, low flow alarms were noted before exiting the operating room. The alarm was secondary to acute pump thrombosis. This is the first reported case of thrombosis immediately post-implant.
