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, an estimated 5% of these procedures carries an elevated risk either due to the physiological or anatomical condition of the patient, or the complexity of a particular procedure (high-risk PCI). High-risk PCI procedures arrant the use of percutaneous ventricular assist devices to stabilize hemodynamics and protect patients throughout the procedure.
