We need more support!
A mechanical circulatory device used to partially or completely
replace the function of either the left ventricle (LVAD); the right
ventricle (RVAD); or both ventricles (BiVAD)
Long-Term LVAD
Short-Term LVAD
• Are there any contraindications to VAD support?
End-stage lung, liver, or renal disease
Metastatic disease
Medical non-adherence or active drug addiction
Active infectious disease
Inability to tolerate systemic anticoagulation (recent CVA, GI bleed, etc.,)
Moderate to severe RV dysfunction for some LVADs

• Utilized for LV support only; not appropriate to
use with RV failure
• Impella 2.5 can be inserted through the femoral
artery during a standard catheterization
procedure; provides up to 2.5 L of flow
• Impella 5.0 inserted via femoral or axillary
artery cut down; provides up to 5L of flow
• The catheter is advanced through the
ascending aorta into the left ventricle
• Pulls blood from an inlet near the tip of the
catheter and expels blood into the ascending
• FDA approved for support of up to 6 hours
• Used for LV support; not
appropriate in RV failure
• Cannulas are inserted
percutaneously through the
femoral vein and advanced across
the intraatrial septum into the left
• The pump withdraws oxygenated
blood from the left atrium and
returns it to the femoral arteries
via arterial cannulas
• Provides up to 5L/min of flow
• Can be used for up to 14 days
• Can be used for LV and/or
RV support
• Cannula are typically
inserted via a midline
• Capable of delivering flows
up to 9.9 L/min
• Can be used for up to 30
• Used for patients with a
combination of acute cardiac
and respiratory failure
• A cannula takes deoxygenated
blood from a central vein or the
right atrium, pumps it past the
oxygenator, and then returns
the oxygenated blood, under
pressure, to the arterial side of
the circulation
• Can be used for days to weeks
