Abstract:The results of intra-aortic balloon pumping in 7 patients with cardiogenic shock after cardiac surgery are reported. 2 patients were unresponsive to IABP, 4 patients showed initial stabilization of the circulation, but became IABP-dependent and died. One patient could be weaned from IABP, but died of uncontrollable cardiac arrhythmias. These results are discussed.
