Potential Adverse Events: Potential adverse events associated with the implantation procedure include, but are not limited to, the following: Infection, Arrhythmias, Bleeding, Hematoma, Thrombus, Myocardial infarction, Transient ischemic attack, Stroke, Death, and Device embolization.

CentriMag Circulatory Support System and PediMag Blood Pump

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

CentriMag™ Circulatory Support System Indications [PMA Approval; 30-day use]: Temporary circulatory support for up to 30 days for one or both sides of the heart to treat post-cardiotomy patients who fail to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass, providing a bridge to decision when it is unclear whether the patient's heart will recover or whether the patient will need alternative, longer-term therapy.

CCentriMag™ Circulatory Support System Contraindications [PMA Approval; 30-day use]: The CentriMag Circulatory Support System is contraindicated for use as a cardiotomy suction device. The system is also contraindicated for patients who are unable or unwilling to be treated with an appropriate anticoagulant such as Heparin or a comparable alternative.

CentriMag™ Circulatory Support System Adverse Events [PMA Approval; 30-day use]: Adverse events that may be associated with mechanical circulatory support can include, but are not limited to, the following: bleeding on device support, hemolysis, infection, renal failure/ dysfunction/ complication, respiratory dysfunction, hepatic dysfunction, cardia arrhythmias (atrial or ventricular), thromboembolism (venous and arterial non-CNS), hypotension, hypertension, device malfunction or failure, psychiatric events, right heart failure, and death.

Humanitarian Device Statement: Caution: Humanitarian Device. The CentriMag™ Circulatory Support System is authorized by Federal Law for temporary circulatory support for up to 30 days for patients in cardiogenic shock due to right ventricular failure. The effectiveness of this device for this use has not been demonstrated.

CentriMag™ RVAS Indications [Humanitarian Exemption Device (HDE) Approval; 30-day use]: The CentriMag Circulatory Support System is intended to provide temporary circulatory support for up to 30 days for patients in cardiogenic shock due to acute right ventricular failure.

CentriMag™ RVAS Contraindications [Humanitarian Exemption Device (HDE) Approval; 30-day use]: The CentriMag Circulatory Support System is contraindicated for use as a cardiotomy suction device. The system is also contraindicated for patients who are unable or unwilling to be treated with an appropriate anticoagulant such as Heparin or a comparable alternative.

CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System Temporary Expanded Indication: The FDA issued an enforcement policy guidance document in April 2020 allowing for FDA-cleared or approved cardiopulmonary bypass devices to be used in an ECMO circuit to treat patients who are experiencing acute respiratory failure and/or acute cardiopulmonary failure during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The CentriMag™ System including the CentriMag™ Blood Pump and PediMag™ Blood Pump are indicated for use as part of an ECMO circuit for longer than 6 hours to treat patients with acute respiratory failure and/or acute cardiopulmonary failure.

CentriMag™ Blood Pump Indications [510(k) Clearance; 6-hour use]: The CentriMag Circulatory Support System is indicated to pump blood through the extracorporeal bypass circuit for extracorporeal circulatory support for periods appropriate to cardiopulmonary bypass (up to six hours). It is also indicated for use in extracorporeal support systems (for periods up to six hours) not requiring complete cardiopulmonary bypass (e.g. valvuloplasty, circulatory support during mitral valve reoperation, surgery of the vena cava or aorta, liver transplants etc.).
