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 RP had higher than expected mortality in its post approval study, much higher than in its pre-market approval study. The vendor and the FDA believe this might be due to poor patient selection and implanting the device too late to aid the patient.

The startup company Genetesis introduced a new cardiac imaging modalityit calls magnetocardiography. The scanner creates images from the biomagnetic activity of the heart, using the polarization and depolarization of the heart during the cardiac cycle. This was at AHA.18, AHA 2018 - the American Heart Association annual meeting

Transplanting Pig Hearts Into Humans One Step Closer. A pig heart, shown here, is very similar in size and anatomy to a human heart. For this reason, pigs are used extensively in pre-clinical animal testing for new implantable cardiovascular devices. If pig hearts could be used for human transplantation, it would greatly alleviate shortages of donor human hearts.
