Effect of next generation pulsatile mechanical circulatory support on cardiac mechanics – The PULSE trial

Effect of next generation pulsatile mechanical circulatory support on cardiac mechanics – The PULSE trial

We are pleased to announce our newest publication in the Cardiovascular Revascularization Medicine from the desk of Prof. Nicolas van Mieghem and Dr. Marcelo Bastos.

MCS is increasingly used in the context of high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The effect of the pulsatile iVAC 2L MCS on left ventricular loading conditions and myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2) is unknown. In this publication, the Erasmus University Medical Centre & Kings College London showcase their clinical experiences with the iVAC 2L device and outline the impact on patients with advanced coronary artery disease at high to prohibitive operative risk in their practice.
