Post-Operative RV Failure and Hemodynamic Support with Impella RP

Dr. Peter Monteleone joins Dr. George Vetrovec to discuss a case involving Impella RP for right ventricular support in immediate post-operative RV failure. RV dysfunction and failure is a known complication at the time of post-operative weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass. Dr. Monteleone discusses the etiology of RV failure and the available treatment options. The case … Continue reading “Post-Operative RV Failure and Hemodynamic Support with Impella RP”
