Abstract

Impella Recover 100 is an intravascular microaxial blood pump designed for short-term circulatory support in conditions of reduced left ventricular function. Two-dimensional echocardiography is a consolidated tool to study and monitor patients undergoing circulatory support. Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography is emerging as a source of more accurate analysis in heart morphology and function. We described the use of 3D echocardiography in a patient who underwent Impella recover 100 support for postcardiotomy shock. 3D echocardiography allowed complete visualization of the pump and provided excellent intraoperative assessment of the complex spatial location into the left ventricle.
