Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Procedural and technology-based advances in circulatory support have enabled an increased number of patients to receive percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Without these advances, many patients would not have been considered for the procedure because of their elevated risk for complications. This chapter describes transcatheter-based circulatory support devices in clinical use today as well as data that support their usage and suggested protocols.
