Protected PCI

Effective Hemodynamic Support in Elective and Urgent High-Risk PCI

A Protected PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) is a minimally invasive cardiac procedure supported with an Impella® heart pump. Impella support helps maintain hemodynamic stability and provides left ventricular unloading during the procedure, which may allow for more thorough PCI and more complete revascularization in a single session, reducing long-term incidences of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE).
