Drug Information available for: Aspirin

Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Arm
LVAD Patients on the placebo arm will be given placebo medication
Device: LVAD Implant
Subjects will undergo Heartmate 3 LVAD implant prior to randomization

Drug: Placebo oral tablet
Subjects will be randomized to either Placebo or Aspirin post implant

Active Comparator: Active Arm
LVAD Patients on the active arm will be given 100mg Aspirin
Device: LVAD Implant
Subjects will undergo Heartmate 3 LVAD implant prior to randomization

Drug: Aspirin 100mg
Subjects will be randomized to either Placebo or Aspirin post implant.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Non-inferority Primary Endpoint [ Time Frame: 1 year post implant ]
    The primary endpoint for this study will be met if the placebo arm is non-inferior to the aspirin arm in the composite of survival free of any non-surgical (any event occuring > 14 days post implant) major hemocompatibility related adverse event (Stroke, pump thrombosis, bleeding [intracranial bleeds that do not meet stroke definition], arterial peripheral thromboembolism), at 1-year post implant

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Non-Surgical Bleeding Secondary Endpoint [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years post implant ]
    The non-surgical bleeding rate per patient year will be compared between treatment groups in the Primary Endpoint Population using Poisson regression.

  2. Antiplatelet Therapy Removal Safety Endpoint [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years post implant ]
    To assess the safety of removal of antiplatelet therapy from the antithrombotic regimen between the two arms of the study using all patient follow up
