The World's Smallest Heart Pump

What Sets Impella Heart Pumps Apart

Supports Your Heart

Impella allows the heart to rest and recover by temporarily assisting the pumping function of the heart to efficiently deliver blood and oxygen to the entire body.

Safe and Effective

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Impella its highest level of approval as safe and effective.

Improved Quality of Life

In a randomized controlled trial, 8-in-10 patients treated with Impella heart pumps experienced reduction in heart failure symptoms or improvement in heart function.1

Jeff Morray was discharged home the following day with normal heart function.

Once the determination was made that a Protected PCI was the best option for Jeff, Impella CP was inserted to allow his heart to rest while his physicians performed a procedure to restore blood flow to parts of the body that may have suffered lack of blood flow.

The temporary support of Impella allowed Devan Smith to recover his heart after four days and resume his normal life with no limitations

Shirley Polk developed peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) after the birth of her second child.
