This study assesses the safety and efficacy of the Impella Recover LP 2.5 System compared to the use of the intra-aortic balloon pump, a mechanical device that increases cardiac output, in high-risk patients undergoing non-emergency percutaneous coronary intervention, commonly known as coronary angioplasty. A device just 4 millimeters wide, the Impella Recover pump is passed to the patient’s heart through an artery in the groin to assist the heart in the critical hours following coronary bypass surgery.
