Effect of intra-aortic balloon pumping after cardiac surgery: comparative study of use in coronary bypass and valve replacement.

Abstract

To compare the effects of intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP) between use for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and for valve replacement, the results were reviewed in 513 patients who underwent CABG (n = 215) or valve replacement (n = 298). The rate of weaning from IABP and in-hospital survival after IABP support were excellent in CABG patients, where… (More)
