High-Risk Intervention Using the Impella® Pump for Three-Vessel Disease

November 30, 2017

In this case, Dr. Francis Kim of Hofstra-Northwell School of Medicine in New York presents a patient severely reduced left ventricular systolic function, chronic total occlusion of the right coronary artery (RCA), and prior coronary intervention of the proximal left anterior descending and proximal left circumflex arteries. In addition, the patient had acute anterior wall ST-elevation myocardial infraction. The patient was found to have an intra-stent restenosis of his prior LAD and LCX stents and was indicated for immediate revascularization.

Learn from Dr. Kim on how the use of the Impella heart pump provided hemodynamic stability, enabled safe intervention of the complex lesions, allowed for laser atherectomy and resulted in successful completion of three-vessel disease intervention.
