Real-World Supported Unprotected Left Main Percutaneous Coronary Intervention with the Impella® Device
“This is an area of intense interest to myself and my team at the Detroit Medical Center. Our experience in left main coronary intervention and circulatory support is extensive.”
Dr. Ted Schreiber of the Detroit Medical Center Heart Hospital discusses his clinical publication, Real-World Supported Unprotected Left Main Percutaneous Coronary Intervention with Impella Device, published in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions.
Dr. Schreiber reviews the analysis and puts the data into the context of clinical practice. In this analysis, investigators evaluated 127 consecutive patients with ULM who received Impella device support during ULM PCI. This single center retrospective evaluation of the cVAD Registry further supports the feasibility, safety, and hemodynamic usefulness of Impella devices for providing acceptable in-hospital and 30-day MACCE rates among critically ill patients undergoing unprotected left main intervention.
