Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to assess reasonable safety and performance of the HeartMate PHP to provide hemodynamic support for up to 72 hours in patients with cardiogenic shock requiring stabilization.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cardiogenic Shock Device: HeartMate PHP Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The HeartMate PHP is a catheter-based axial flow pump designed to provide partial left ventricular circulatory support. This prospective, nonrandomized, controlled, single-arm, multi-center, open-label trial will evaluate the safety and performance of the device in patients with cardiogenic shock.

All enrolled patients will be treated with the HeartMate PHP device
Device: HeartMate PHP
The HeartMate PHP system is a catheter-based heart pump and console designed to provide hemodynamic left ventricular support for up to 3 days to stabilize patients by maintaining adequate systemic cardiac output.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical stabilization defined as improvement of Cardiac Index to > 2.2 L/min/m2 [ Time Frame: 72 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. An assessment of major adverse events [ Time Frame: 72 hours ]
