Hemodynamic Support Devices

This hemodynamic support systems channel includes content on intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABP), percutaneous ventricular assist devices (pVAD) like the Impella or TandemHeart, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and ventricular assist devices (VAD). This channel also includes use of these devices in support of patients in cardiogenic shock and advanced heart failure

The Abiomed Impella heart pump

The Impella percutaneous left ventricular assist devices (pLVAD) is an emerging option for partial or total circulatory support. In several randomized, controlled trials, pLVAD therapy demonstrated a better hemodynamic profile compared to IABP, although this did not translate into improved 30-day survival with use of pLVAD therapy.
