As the leader in counterpulsation therapy, Maquet is committed to developing IABs that deliver greater hemodynamic support. That’s why we’ve built on the exceptional track record of the MEGA 8Fr 50cc IAB to create an expanded MEGA family. With the addition of the larger volume MEGA 7.5Fr 30cc and 40cc IAB, there’s now a balloon that delivers superior blood volume displacement for everyone, at any height.
MEGA: Greater hemodynamic support and higher efficacy for every patient.
Why are the NEW sizes better for my patient?
Larger volume balloons like MEGA displace more blood in the aorta during diastole, resulting in improved augmentation and unloading. With these new sizing guidelines, a larger patient population can benefit from greater hemodynamic support than ever before.
