VIDEO: Demonstration of Abiomed Impella ECP 9 French Transcatheter Ventricular Assist Device

This is a quick animation demonstrating how the new 9 French Abiomed Impella ECP expands to approximately 18 French and provides peak flows of 3.5 L/min. The device was approved for a U.S. FDA investigational device exemption (IDE) first-in-human trial in June 2020. Read more on the IDE. It uses a collapsible cannula instead of the fix size cannula used on the current generation of Impella devices. The design addresses issues with needing large bore vascular access and associated bleeding complications.

The Impella series of hemodynamic support devices from Abiomed are percutaneously delivered, catheter-based heart pumps that offer temporary ventricular assist support.
