Impella® 2.5

Impella 2.5

How the Impella 2.5 Works

The Impella 2.5 pulls blood from the left ventricle through an inlet area near the tip and expels blood from the catheter into the ascending aorta.

The pump can be inserted via a standard catheterization procedure through the femoral artery, into the ascending aorta, across the valve and into the left ventricle.
