Request To Participate In The Academic Research (Registry)

The purpose of this Registry is to utilize the data for the clinical evaluation and management of lifesaving treatment of patients in acute heart failure, such as cardiogenic shock, through understanding and analyzing the status of Circulatory Assist Pump Catheter usage and its performance, as well as investigating (analyzing) those factors affecting improvement of survival rate and prognosis. Also by identifying clinical risks and benefits of the Pump Catheter, appropriate safety measures can be promoted, which we hope will be instrumental in the penetration of its appropriate use.

For these purposes, the data of every patient in whom Circulatory Assist Pump Catheter is used will be collected. If you do not wish to participate in the research, please contact the physician at the hospital that the device was used.
