Intra Aortic Balloon Catheter Kit (8F)

  • Myosist is an IAB catheter kit that is operated with an IAB pump.
  • The device is placed in the descending aorta. By balloon inflation in the aorta during diastole and deflation during systole, it increases blood supply to the Heart muscle and decreases the workload of the left ventricle.
  • During diastole, the balloon inflates and increases blood flow to the coronary arteries, increasing myocardial oxygen supply.
  • During systole, the balloon deflates and this causes a decrease in pressure in the aorta; this decrease in pressure assists the left ventricle by reducing the pressure that needs to be generated to achieve ejection through the aortic valve.
