Studies Presented at TCT Connect Associate Higher Survival With Early Identification of Right Heart Failure and Early Use of Impella RP

Share

Data presented at TCT Connect, the 32nd annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, finds early identification of right heart failure and early use of Impella RP is associated with significantly higher survival rates. Early identification of patients requiring right-heart support is critical because prior studies have shown 37% of AMI cardiogenic shock (AMICS) patients exhibit right heart dysfunction1, which results in an eight times increased risk of mortality2.

The prospective, multi-center FDA PMA post-approval study presented at TCT compared survival in patients who would have met enrollment criteria for the RECOVER RIGHT trial to those who would not have qualified for the trial because they were in cardiogenic shock for more than 48 hours. The RECOVER RIGHT trial and subsequent HDE post-approval study data were collected between 2012 and 2017 and led to a PMA approval for the Impella RP in 2017. The ongoing PMA post-approval study presented at TCT Connect enrolled patients from September 2017 through June 2019 and found patients who received Impella RP support within 48 hours of cardiogenic shock onset had a significantly higher survival rate than those who received delayed right-heart support (73% vs. 14%, p<0.001). The 73% survival rate is comparable to the pre-PMA RECOVER RIGHT and HDE studies survival rate. (see figure 1)

“Early detection of right heart failure and early action is key to improving patient survival rates,” said Mark Anderson, MD, chair of the Department of Cardiac Surgery at HUMC/Hackensack Meridian Health. “This study suggests that in right heart failure, reducing the time between shock onset and initiation of Impella RP is a key element of proper patient support.”

A second study presented at TCT aims to help clinicians identify early triggers of right heart failure. The analysis of 100 patients performed by lead investigators of the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI) Study compared AMICS patients with right ventricular failure (RVF) to those without and found persistent diastolic suction alarms on the Automated Impella Controller (AIC) and an elevated central venous pressure (CVP) of greater than 12mmHg can be an early indication of RVF. (see figure 2)

“The real-time insight from the AIC can be an important tool to help a physician achieve better patient outcomes,” said Babar Basir, DO, interventional cardiologist at Henry Ford Hospital. “Prolonged diastolic suction alarms can be an early marker of right ventricular failure in patients with elevated filling pressures, and increased duration of diastolic suction is associated with worse outcomes.”

Impella RP is the most studied right-sided device and the only percutaneous technology with FDA approval designating it as safe and effective for right-heart support. Its exclusive FDA approval is a result of five years of research that included:

  • RECOVER RIGHT, an FDA-approved, prospective, multicenter, single-arm study, which commenced after the company received FDA investigational device exemption (IDE) approval in November 2012 and concluded in 2014
  • A Continuous Access Protocol (CAP)
  • HDE post-approval study, which was completed in 2017
  • PMA post-approval study, initiated in September 2017

In addition, on May 29, 2020, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to expand the use of Impella RP to include patients suffering from COVID-19-related right ventricular complications, including right ventricular dysfunction associated with pulmonary embolism. Impella is the only cardiovascular therapeutic device that has received FDA emergency use authorization to treat COVID-19 patients.

The authorized Impella LV Support Systems have neither been cleared or approved for the authorized indication for use. The Impella RP and Impella LV Support Systems have been authorized for the above emergency use by FDA under an EUA and have been authorized only for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of medical devices under section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.

In Europe, the Impella 2.5, Impella CP and Impella CP with SmartAssist are CE marked for treatment of high-risk PCI and AMI cardiogenic shock patients for up to 5 days. Impella 5.0 and Impella LD are CE marked to treat heart attack or cardiomyopathy patients in cardiogenic shock for up to 10 days. The Impella 5.5 with SmartAssist is CE marked to treat heart attack or cardiomyopathy patients in cardiogenic shock for up to 30 days.

Veracyte Announces New Data Published in Journal of Clinical Oncology Suggest the Prosigna Breast Cancer Test’s Genomic Underpinning Drives Prognostic Performance30.10.2020 13:15:00 CETPress release

Veracyte, Inc., (Nasdaq: VCYT) announced today that findings from the first study evaluating the molecular drivers underlying multiple prognostic genomic breast cancer tests were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO). Results suggest that the genomic underpinnings of Veracyte’s Prosigna® Breast Cancer Gene Signature Assay, particularly the test’s relative weighting of genes predicting tumor proliferation, may explain the classifier’s previously demonstrated, higher likelihood of predicting long-term risk of recurrence among certain breast cancer patients, compared to other breast cancer tests. The study compared the commercial forms of four breast cancer recurrence-risk tests: the PAM50-based Prosigna Risk of Recurrence (ROR), the Oncotype DX Risk Score (RS), EndoPredict (EP) and Breast Cancer Index (BCI). It expands upon a previous evaluation of these same tests using an identical dataset, which compared their ability to accurately predict 10-year distant disease recurre
