Intra-aortic rotary blood pumps (IARBPs) have been used for partial cardiac support during cardiogenic shock, myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention, and potentially viable for long-term circulatory support. Intra-aortic rotary blood pump support continuously removes volume from the aortic root, which lowers left ventricular preload, external work (LVEW), and improves end-organ perfusion. However, IARBP support diminishes aortic root pressure and coronary artery. It may also… CONTINUE READING
