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.
The Impella heart pump gave Shirley’s heart a chance to rest and recover for two days, which allowed her to return to her active routine as a mom and cyclist.
