    Mechanical cardiac support devices are used for patients with cardiopulmonary failure. We reviewed our institutional experience with noncardiac surgical procedures (NCPs) in patients supported by ventricular assist devices (VADs, n = 198) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO, n = 165)...

    OBJECTIVES Fulminant myocarditis with cardiogenic shock is fatal without mechanical circulatory support. Once haemodynamic stability has been established with a ventricular assist device (VAD), the decision to wait for myocardial recovery as opposed to listing for an orthotopic heart transplant...

    A 31-year-old male was transferred to our hospital with severe heart failure due to viral myocarditis.

    Abstract: Objective: Fulminant myocarditis (FM) is uncommon and may be followed by a rapidly intractable cardiogenic shock. We report five consecutive patients with FM successfully bridged to recovery with a mechanical paracorporel biventricular assist device (BiVAD). Methods: Five patients,...

    Myocarditis among pediatric patients varies in severity from mild disease to a fulminant course with overwhelming refractory shock and a high risk of death. Because the disease is potentially reversible, it is reasonable to deploy extracorporeal membranous oxygenation (ECMO) to bridge patients...

    Abstract: Objectives: Acute fulminant myocarditis (AFM) is a disease category that is easily neglected. Circulatory mechanical support is sometimes required for this devastating condition. We analyzed our experience in managing AFM with mechanical circulatory support. Methods: We applied...
