Mechanical circulatory support for fulminant myocarditis

Abstract

Fulminant myocarditis is potentially fatal because it progresses rapidly into cardiogenic shock; thus, immediate and appropriate treatment is essential. Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) is an important part of treatment for fulminant myocarditis. We review our experience of treating fulminant myocarditis with MCS.
