Practical Considerations of Percutaneous Ventricular Assist Devices

Percutaneous ventricular assist devices are increasingly used today, allowing the scope of left ventricular support to move out of the operating room and into the interventional suite and cardiovascular care unit. This has given patients requiring short-term therapy an opportunity to undergo high-risk procedures and provide a failing left ventricular support until native recovery can occur. A growing body of evidence exists that demonstrates device efficacy and safety, as well as its potential clinical importance, a topic that will be reviewed here. Additionally, many providers seek a resource for technical considerations and troubleshooting. We also aim to provide insight into such considerations.
