A severe acute myocardial infarction patient with cardiogenic shock was successfully treated with percutaneous coronary intervention, percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS), and percutaneous left atrium-artery bypass (LAAB). LAAB assisted the patient's circulation sufficiently, with few complications. The patient recovered from shock after LAAB. High fever and elevation of CPK disappeared after removal of the intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP). Staphylococcus epidermidis was detected in the culture of the IABP tip later. A small left atrium-right atrium shunt remained for ten months after LAAB removal and disappeared naturally. The patient was discharged 7 months after his initial myocardial infarction. He has been well for over one year since discharge without the need for re-hospitalization [corrected]
