Abstract

Pulmonary artery balloon counterpulsation was used in 3 patients who underwent open-heart operation for the treatment of acquired cardiac lesions. This form of support was initiated because the patients could not be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass even with intraaortic balloon counterpulsation and maximal pharmacological support. After pulmonary artery balloon pumping was instituted, cardiopulmonary bypass was successfully terminated in all 3 patients. One of them is alive and well one year after operation.
