Abstract

Postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCCS) is associated with considerably high rates of mortality. In PCCS, veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation has been used despite the high rates of complications and poor outcome. Since the introduction of Impella CP (Abiomed, Danvers, MA, USA), effective left-ventricular unloading and systemic perfusion could be maintained even in patients with severe PCCS. Herein, we describe the successful treatment of PCCS following combined heart surgery in a patient by Impella CP insertion.
