Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: CentriMag RVAS U.S. Post-approval Study Protocol

Further study details as provided by Thoratec Corporation:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival [ Time Frame: 30 days post device removal ]

    In patients who recover and do not go on to transplantation or a long-term device: Survival to 30 days post-support or to hospital discharge (whichever is longer).

    In patients who do not recover and are bridged to transplant or a long-term system: Survival to induction of anesthesia for implantation of a long-term device or heart transplant.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemodynamics [ Time Frame: Expected average of 14 days during device use; 2 days post device removal ]
    Reductions in MAP/CVP

  • End organ function [ Time Frame: Expected average of 14 days during device use; 2 days post device removal ]
    Reductions in creatinine and BUN; Reductions in Total Bilirubin

  • Adverse Effects [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Acceptable incidence of adverse effects

  • Hemodynamics [ Time Frame: Expected average of 14 days during device use; 2 days post device removal ]
    Increases in MAP and cardiac index
