During the conference, physician-researchers will present clinical data demonstrating Impella leads to higher survival rates for cardiogenic shock patients and quality of life improvements for heart failure patients. Additional presentations and live cases will describe how Impella innovation and best practices have advanced safety and ease-of-use. Attendees can also receive hands-on Impella training and learn about future Impella technology.
Clinical Data Presentations:
Impella will be featured in presentations on topics that include a new analysis of data from the STEMI-DTU pilot randomized controlled trial and new data on cardiogenic shock and myocarditis outcomes from the J-PVAD registry in
Abiomed’s preCARDIA technology to treat acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) will be featured in two presentations that provide data showing preCARDIA reduces stressed blood volume and improves urine sodium excretion in ADHF patients.
