Case Report

Novel Combination of Impella and Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation as a Bridge to Full Recovery in Fulminant Myocarditis

Table 1

Changes in hemodynamic parameters following Impella implantation.


MAP (mmHg)4766
CVP (mmHg)1422
CI (L/min/m2)2.94.0
SVR (dyn-s-cm−5)600300

All hemodynamic parameters improved in the initial post-implantation period. For the pre-Impella values, the patient was still on multiple vasopressor agents. For the post-Impella values, vasopressors had been nearly titrated off. (MAP: mean arterial pressure, CVP: central venous pressure, CI: cardiac index, SVR: systemic vascular resistance).
