Patients with severe coronary artery disease that is not amenable to coronary artery bypass surgery face formidable risks when major aortic surgery becomes necessary. In this report we present such a patient, who successfully underwent abdominal aortic aneurysm resection and graft replacement with the prophylactic use of intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation. The use of intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation at the time of surgery has the potential of improving cardiac function in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and favorably influencing the perioperative and postoperative mortality in these patients. Its use also appears worthy of trial in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm and shock, in the hope that it will result in improved survival in these patients.
