Abstract

We describe a patient who could not be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass without mechanical circulatory assistance because of severe cardiac failure after surgical repair of a dissecting aneurysm of the descending aorta. Placement of an intra-aortic balloon in a conduit attached to the proximal aorta enabled the patient to recover from perioperative cardiac failure after all other measures had failed.
