Circulatory Support System Percutaneous

Impella LP2.5
®
The Impella® LP2.5 is a minimally invasive percutaneous ventricular unloading catheter that allows the heart to rest and recover by: • Actively unloading the ventricle

• Reducing myocardial workload and oxygen consumption, while increasing cardiac output, coronary- and end-organ perfusion Quick and easy percutaneous insertion allows rapid positioning into the left ventricle. Thereafter, up to 2.5 liters of blood per minute are pumped from the left ventricle into the ascending aorta – actively unloading the heart for up to 5 days. The Impella® LP2.5 has been used in European centers to support patients during high-risk PCI, post PCI, AMI with low cardiac output.

How it works
The Impella® LP catheters (LP – Left Peripheral) are placed over a guide wire via the femoral artery in the body. The catheter is advanced into the left ventricle, the guide wire is removed, and the catheter actively unloads the heart (up to 5 liters of blood per minute). This facilitates myocardial recovery by reducing the heart’s workload simultaneously providing perfusion to the body organs.

The Impella® 2.5 is an Investigational Device limited by U.S. Federal Law solely for Investigational Use in the United States.

Impella LP5.0
®
The Impella® LP5.0 is a minimally invasive ventricular unloading catheter that provides enhanced hemodynamic support of up to 5.0 liters of blood per minute. It allows the heart to rest and recover by: • Actively unloading the ventricle • Reducing myocardial workload and oxygen consumption, while increasing cardiac output, coronary and end-organ perfusion Once in place, up to 5 liters of blood per minute is pumped from the left ventricle into the ascending aorta – actively unloading the heart for up to 10 days. The Impella® LP5.0 has been used in European centers to support patients with postcardiotomy “failure to wean,” post PCI, myocarditis, AMI cardiogenic shock or as a “Bridge to Next Decision.”
