·What is an abstract?
Read the abstract of the medical case
embolism resulting from intra-aortic balloon pumping: a case report
Intra-aortic balloon pumping is
used in elective percutaneous coronary intervention for increasing coronary
blood flow. However, intra-aortic balloon pumping may decrease visceral blood
flow and cause mesenteric ischemia by visceral artery obstruction.
We report the case of a
79-year-old Asian man in whom elective percutaneous coronary intervention was
performed with intra-aortic balloon pumping. He died from mesenteric ischemia
25 hours after the procedure. Microscopic findings showed that intra-aortic
balloon pumping had detached the aortic plaque, breaking it into systemic
emboli, leading to subsequent intestinal ischemia and necrosis.
We conclude that intra-aortic
balloon pumping can cause an intestinal cholesterol embolism.
