EDECMO 32 – Archimedes Screw: Is Impella the Future of Mechanical Circulatory Support?

In this episode we change direction a bit and explore two very different applications of the Impella® device – a percutaneously-placed temporary ventricular assist device (VAD) sold by Abiomed (no financial disclosures). These VADs work by the use of a micro-axillary pump which is typically placed by interventional cardiologists under fluoroscopy. The inlet of the pump is placed in the ventrical while the outlet rests just above the aortic valve.  Take a look at this video for a  better understanding of how this works:
