Abstract

Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has become a mainstay therapy for patients with severe cardiogenic shock [1]. Elective deployment of ECMO as prophylactic circulatory support to avoid refractory cardiac arrest or development of shock during high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) has not yet unequivocally been accepted as procedural routine in the catheterisation laboratory.
