  • Publication number: 20220161019
    Abstract: Disclosed is a minimally invasive miniaturized percutaneous mechanical circulatory support system. The system may be placed across the aortic valve via a single femoral arterial access point. The system includes a low profile axial rotary blood pump carried by the distal end of a catheter. The system can be percutaneously inserted through the femoral artery and positioned across the aortic valve into the left ventricle. The device actively unloads the left ventricle by pumping blood from the left ventricle into the ascending aorta and systemic circulation. A magnetic drive and encased motor housing allows for purgeless operation for extended periods of time to treat various ailments, for example more than six hours as acute therapy for cardiogenic shock.
