Cardiac Intervention Set (CiSet)
When treating patients with high-risk PCI, the physician should take into account a 7 - 10% risk of acute hemodynamic instability; this almost always leads to the need for urgent circulatory support. Cardiac assist devices can be used to regain stability and to support the patient as quickly and effectively as possible.
- Rising numbers of cardiac interventions are occurring, especially in older and sicker patients   
- Increasingly complex cardiac interventions occur after the introduction of new stent variations (e.g. drug eluting or dissolving stents) and evolving technologies (e.g. minimally invasive valve-replacement) 
- Increased need for, and acceptance of circulatory support during high-risk PCI    or valve replacement.
