Impella heart pumps are the world’s smallest heart pumps. They unload the heart while providing coronary and end organ perfusion. Impella SmartAssist technology enables improved patient outcomes via real-time intelligence. Abiomed augments limited hospital resources by providing 24x7 support on-site, on-call and online.

Throughout TCT, and at a pre-conference workshop on November 3, leading physician-researchers will present data demonstrating:

  • Complete revascularization with Impella improves ejection fraction and long-term patient outcomes.
  • Cardiogenic shock best practices, including early unloading with Impella pre-PCI and timely escalation to Impella RP and Impella 5.5 with SmartAssist, are associated with improved survival and native heart recovery.

During TCT 2021, physicians will detail final results from two large studies of Impella -- the PROTECT III post approval study and the RESTORE EF study. Interim results from both studies were presented at TCT 2020 and demonstrated the benefits of using contemporary practices to achieve complete revascularization with Impella.

The high-quality clinical evidence being generated from the PROTECT series of studies includes the PROTECT II randomized controlled trial (RCT) and the ongoing PROTECT IV RCT of Impella use in high-risk PCI patients. Based on PROTECT II RCT data, and data from additional robust prospective clinical studies, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Impella premarket approvals (PMA) as safe and effective for high-risk PCI, cardiogenic shock and right heart failure.

TCT presenters will also review the real-world evidence (RWE) and best practices gathered since Impella’s FDA approvals. This evidence will inform the RECOVER IV RCT of Impella use in cardiogenic shock patients. The RWE includes prospective data from the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI) Study, J-PVAD Study and INOVA Study. These datasets demonstrate cardiogenic shock best practices, including early use of Impella, are associated with improved survival rates of 71%, 77% and 82% (respectively), compared to the historical cardiogenic shock survival rate of about 50%.

In-person attendees of TCT 2021 are invited to visit Abiomed at the TCT Industry Hub, which will be open from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm EDT. At the Hub, attendees will be able to participate in hands-on Impella demonstrations, view the newest technologies, talk with members of the Abiomed product development team, and learn the latest information about Abiomed’s ongoing and planned randomized controlled trials.
