THT 2023: MCS device selection in HF patients - Where does counterpulsation fit?

June 30, 2023

This session focuses on the unique physiological effects of counterpulsation in advanced heart failure patients. Moreover, the session provides guidance on MCS selection based on underlying etiology, clinical phenotyping, and predictors for positive hemodynamic and clinical response. Finally, you will be presented with novel applications for counterpulsation in HF.
