Abstract

Intraaortic balloon pumping (IABP) has been used on an estimated 30,000 adults annually for the management of low cardiac output (CO). However, its application to pediatric patients has been more limited. In our institution, successful preclinical trials [1] encouraged us to apply the IABP to pediatric patients with low CO refractory to pharmacologic management [2].
