Abstract

Cardiopulmonary support (CPS) can resuscitate a patient with circulatory collapse during high-risk interventional procedures, although vascular complications may accompany its use. We report a patient with cardiogenic shock secondary to myocardial infarction who required extended CPS support associated with acute infarct-related coronary artery angioplasty and stent placement. Leg ischemia due to an occlusive cannula was resolved using a percutaneous anterograde perfusion device. In general, such devices may have application in patients dependent on mechanical support associated with limb ischemia.
