OBJECTIVES To investigate the safety of a novel percutaneous circulatory support device during high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND The Reitan catheter pump (RCP) consists of a catheter-mounted pump-head with a foldable propeller and surrounding cage. Positioned in the descending aorta the pump creates a pressure gradient, reducing afterload and enhancing organ perfusion. METHODS Ten consecutive patients requiring circulatory support underwent PCI; mean age 71… CONTINUE READING
