Abstract

The Impella 5.0 microaxial pump is a miniaturized left ventricular assist device commonly used for circulatory support in acute cardiogenic shock. The catheter-based pump is designed to be inserted either into a peripheral artery or directly into the ascending aorta. We report the first case in which the Impella 5.0 device was placed directly into the ascending aorta via a small right anterior thoracotomy in a patient following acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock.
