Usefulness of the low profile "True 8" intra-aortic balloon pumping catheter for preventing limb lschemia.


The most important limitation in the use of an intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP) is the risk of vascular complications. Recently, an IABP catheter with an 8.0 French shaft and low profile that may decrease the risk of vascular morbidity has been developed. We evaluated the in vitro balloon performance and the prevention of limb ischemia in clinical use… (More)
