Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intervention Device: IMPELLA® RP


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients that have developed signs of right ventricular failure either: A) within 48 hours post-implantation of an FDA approved implantable surgical LVAD (left ventricular assist device )(Cohort A) or B) subsequent to postcardiotomy shock within 48 hours post surgery or post myocardial infarction (Cohort B).
  2. Age ≥18 years old
  3. Signed Informed consent

Exclusion Criteria

  1. INTERMACS 1 patients (Critical cardiogenic shock patient who is "crashing and burning", has life-threatening hypotension and rapidly escalating inotropic or pressor support, with critical organ hypoperfusion often confirmed by worsening acidosis and lactate levels)
  2. Evidence of acute neurologic injury
  3. RA(right atrium),RV (right Ventricle) and/or PA (pulmonary artery) thrombus
  4. Intolerance to anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapies
  5. Existing congenital heart disease that would preclude the insertion of the device.
  6. Participation in any other clinical investigation that is likely to confound study results or affect study outcome
  7. Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) with mechanical complications ( ventricular septal defect, myocardial rupture, papillary muscle rupture)
