Abstract

Intra-aortic ballon pumping (IABP) was employed in five patients. Following elective open-heart surgery, they manifested severe cardiac failure which after maximal medical treatment would seemingly have ended fatally. Duration of the pumping was from 15 to 20 hours. Three patient survived. The use of IABP in the treatment of low-output failure after cardiopulmonary bypass is reviewed.
