Abstract

The CentriMag, an extracorporeal short-term ventricular assist device designed for treatment of patients with acute cardiogenic shock, is Conformité Européenne-marked in Europe for use up to 30 days. Extended use beyond the licensed period is not uncommon, however. We have developed a skirted cannula technique for apical cannulation in implantation of the Centrimag. This technique allows easy positioning of the cannula and excellent hemostasis. It also offers secure fixation of the cannula so that patients can ambulate and attend rehabilitation programs should extended use be anticipated.
