Neonatal piglet model of intraaortic balloon pumping: improved efficacy using echocardiographic timing.


BACKGROUND Pediatric intraaortic balloon pumping (IABP) has met with little success because of technical difficulty in tracking rapid heart rates. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of M-mode echocardiography for IABP timing in a neonatal piglet model. METHODS Two groups of piglets underwent mitral valve avulsion to create a model of shock… (More)
