Abstract

Hemodynamic support with the Impella device is an important tool during high risk percutaneous coronary intervention. This device is usually inserted via the femoral artery. However, some patients have severe peripheral artery disease precluding the use of the femoral artery for this purpose. The axillary artery is a viable alternative in these cases. We reviewed the two access techniques for inserting the Impella via the axillary artery and also described 6 cases of successful implantation.
