In this article, the authors aim to summarize the current data regarding the incidence/prevalence of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke in patients with continuous-flow LVADs, compare axial and centrifugal devices, and discuss the major risk factors for neurologic events that have been identified.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2018 Elsevier Inc.
