Abstract

Aortic stenosis (AS) has been considered an exclusion criterion for the use of the Impella 2.5 catheter. We describe a case in which the Impella catheter was successfully implanted and used for hemodynamic support during balloon aortic valvuloplasty in a high-risk patient of severe AS with a calculated aortic valve area of 0.59 cm2.
