Abstract

The CardioMEMS™ HF system (Abbott, Chicago, IL), a wireless pulmonary artery (PA) pressure sensor, was approved by the FDA after demonstration of reduction of heart failure hospitalization in New York Heart Association class III patients. These devices are implanted into the desired PA branch via either common femoral or jugular vein access. However, in some patients who cannot undergo the procedure via these routine access sites for various reasons, alternative access is needed. We describe, to our knowledge, the first case of successful CardioMEMS™ implantation via brachial vein access.
