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


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).
