150,000 Patients Supported with Impella

For some patients, their doctors may determine their heart disease is too severe for stenting and too high-risk for surgery. For these patients, Protected PCI, or protected stenting, may be an option.

Protected PCI is a widely accepted procedure using Impella, the world’s smallest heart pump, to temporarily assist the pumping function of the heart. The Impella heart pump helps maintain blood flow blood to critical organs such as the heart, brain and kidneys during a stenting procedure. Protected stenting with Impella provides an option for patients who are at high-risk for surgical complications and those with severe heart disease.

Protected PCI with Impella®

A Protected PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) also known as protected stenting is a minimally invasive heart procedure supported by Impella 2.5® or Impella CP®. The Impella heart pump helps maintain hemodynamic stability during the procedure, enabling patients with severe heart disease to safely undergo a stenting procedure.

The Impella® heart pump has been proven safe and effective to reduce adverse events during high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions, including unstable blood pressure and poor circulation.
