Pulmonary artery pressure telemonitoring by CardioMEMS in a patient pre- and post-left ventricular assist device implantation
We present a case to demonstrate the feasibility of pulmonary artery monitoring with the CardioMEMS sensor for the preoperative optimization of patients with end-stage heart failure undergoing LVAD surgery. Additionally, we demonstrate the feasibility of combining two state-of-the-art techniques by integrating haemodynamic feedback from CardioMEMS and static pump settings of an LVAD. CardioMEMS aids in the remote monitoring of LVAD patients with the potential of identifying complications, pump dysfunction or filling status alterations.
