Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is widely used as a mechanical support device. Current evidence after the IABP-SHOCK II trial is ambiguous. We evaluated the impact of IABP on hemodynamic parameters (Cardiac Output (CO), Cardiac Power Output (CPO) and Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR)) measured at 6 and 24 hours in patients presenting with cardiogenic shock (CS) with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) amongst Asian Indians.
On the stage of left atrial percutaneous procedures a number of acute complications and their management have been described. In the current brief report, coronary air embolism, its acute manifestations, differential diagnosis and outcomes were presented in three patients who underwent cryoballoon ablation of atrial fibrillation and left appendage closure.
We present the case of a pregnant woman with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome with recurrent episodes of tachycardia, refractory to antiarrhythmic drug therapy, who underwent catheter ablation of a left lateral accessory pathway without the use of fluoroscopy.
