Impella Updates – Reaccess Sheath

This sheath enables reaccess to the artery for the duration of Impella support with up to an 0.035” guidewire. The additional sheath length may provide improved hemostasis for tissue tracks longer than 6cm.

Mt. Sinai Protected PCI Algorithm

Download the Mt. Sinai Protected PCI Algorithm to guide decision-making for appropriate use of the Impella 2.5 and Impella CP heart pump for Protected PCI.

Henry Ford Algorithm

This is a sample high-risk PCI algorithm used by Henry Ford Health System. Specifically, it is a Left Ventricular Mechanical Circulatory Support Device (MCS) Decision Tree Before Elective CTO and Complex PCI.

INOVA Heart and Vascular Institute Protected PCI Algorithm

Download INOVA Heart and Vascular Institute’s Protected PCI algorithm, which begins with a heart team evaluation of high risk criteria including complex anatomy, comorbidities and hemodynamic compromise. Clinical goals include increasing ventricular function, decreasing angina/heart failure, reducing re-hospitalization, and improving quality of life.
