We used the Impella Recover LD 5.0 Left Ventricular Assist Device to support a 61-year-old woman with an acute myocardial infarction, compromised pulmonary function, and severe cardiovascular disease during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Off-pump CABG or CABG with cardiopulmonary bypass would have been risky. Our case highlights the usefulness of the Impella Recover LD, which can be inserted into the ascending aorta via a prosthetic graft, for providing hemodynamic support during and after CABG in patients with complex cardiovascular disease.
