Abbott currently offers two short-term circulatory support systems. The Abbott CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System has a magnetically levitated impeller in a centrifugal blood pump that provides hemocompatible left and/or right ventricular support across a range of clinical conditions. Clinical experience with the CentriMag system is extensive, with more than 40,000 sold and more than 150 articles in the literature. The HeartMate Percutaneous Heart Pump (PHP) System is a catheter-based heart pump and console designed to provide short-term left ventricular support to rapidly stabilize hemodynamics or to maintain adequate cardiac output. The key feature of the pump is an integrated 14 Fr arterial sheath that is placed through the femoral artery. The distal portion of the catheter then expands to 24 F after it is inserted into the left ventricle across the aortic valve. This feature is made possible by a collapsible elastomeric impeller and cannula that the operator expands during use. The impeller pumps blood from the left ventricle through the collapsible, nitinol-reinforced polyurethane cannula into the ascending aorta.
