Intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation is currently the most used mechanical assistance device for patients with cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction. However, a recently published meta-analysis and trial failed to confirm previous knowledge. We report the results of four patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction, complicated by cardiogenic shock unsuitable for intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation treated with early levosimendan infusion during primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
