Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation, percutaneous left ventricular assist devices, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation: are they competing therapies? What does the heart need and when?
With an unrestricted educational grant from MAQUET Cardiovascular GETINGE GROUP
This video is offered by Maquet
- To discuss the haemodynamics of mechanical circulatory support in the unstable patient undergoing PCI
- To understand the indications for intra-aortic balloon pump therapy versus percutaneous ventricular assist and/or extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation
- To discuss real-world experience and outcomes in treating complex PCI procedures
