TCT Connect to Highlight How Impella Enables Improved Outcomes for High-Risk PCI, Cardiogenic Shock and Right Heart Failure Patients

Share

The benefits of a more complete revascularization with Impella heart pumps in high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients and the value of Impella protocol-based treatment for survival and native heart recovery in cardiogenic shock patients will be highlighted at TCT Connect, the 32nd annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. Throughout the virtual conference, October 14-18, leading physicians will present data about the benefits of Impella therapy, while Abiomed (NASDAQ:ABMD) will offer virtual training around access, closure and patient management skills to achieve improved outcomes.

The latest data from the PROTECT III trial has been selected as a TCT Connect 2020 “Best of Abstract” and will be presented by William O’Neill, MD, on Thursday, October 15 at 3:25 p.m. EDT. This presentation will be an update to the PROTECT III data presented at TCT 2019 which demonstrated a reduction in the primary endpoint of death, stroke, myocardial infarction and repeat procedures at 90 days with Impella-supported Protected PCI, compared to the PROTECT II Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT). The PROTECT series of FDA clinical studies, which includes PROTECT I, the PROTECT II RCT and PROTECT III, is the largest-ever FDA study of hemodynamically supported high-risk PCI patients.

Abiomed is hosting two e-satellite symposia where renowned interventionalists will present data and best practices for using Impella technology to improve outcomes in both high-risk PCI and cardiogenic shock.

The first symposium will feature best practices for using percutaneous mechanical circulatory support to enable complete revascularization in complex and sick patients, including COVID-19 patients. It is chaired by Cindy Grines, MD, chief scientific officer of Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute in Atlanta and president of the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI).

The schedule for this symposium is below:

ABOUT IMPELLA HEART PUMPS

The Impella 2.5® and Impella CP® devices are U.S. FDA PMA approved to treat certain advanced heart failure patients undergoing elective and urgent percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) such as stenting or balloon angioplasty, to reopen blocked coronary arteries. The Impella 2.5, Impella CP, Impella CP with SmartAssist®, Impella 5.0®, Impella LD®, and Impella 5.5® with SmartAssist® are U.S. FDA approved heart pumps used to treat heart attack or cardiomyopathy patients in cardiogenic shock, and have the unique ability to enable native heart recovery, allowing patients to return home with their own heart. The Impella RP® is U.S. FDA approved to treat right heart failure or decompensation following left ventricular assist device implantation, myocardial infarction, heart transplant or open-heart surgery. The Impella RP is also authorized for emergency use by healthcare providers (HCPs) in the hospital setting for providing temporary right ventricular support for up to 14 days in critical care patients with a body surface area ≥1.5 m2, for the treatment of acute right heart failure or decompensation caused by complications related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19), including pulmonary embolism (PE).
