Cardiac Support

Cardiac Support

Physicians use mechanical ventricular assist devices to support patients through periods of hemodynamic instability. Ventricular assist devices used for short-term support are usually brought into the patient through minimally invasive methods, mostly by accessing blood vessels in the groin (percutaneous delivery).

Cardiogenic Shock

Cardiogenic shock is a medical emergency characterized by the inability of the heart to pump sufficient blood volume for adequate organ and tissue perfusion. Cardiogenic shock carries a dire prognosis with a high in-hospital mortality.

High Risk PCI

Percutaneous coronary procedures allow the minimally invasive treatment of coronary artery disease. These procedures are a mainstay of interventional cardiology and usually uneventful. However, some procedures carry an elevated risk either due to the physiological or anatomical condition of the patient, or the complexity of a particular procedure, and are deemed high-risk procedures (high-risk PCI).
