Indications for use of the intraaortic balloon pump have expanded as advances in the treatment of heart disease have continued. The intraaortic balloon pump is the most widely used circulatory assist device inserted as short term or long term therapy. Because the percutaneous femoral artery approach requires bedrest, new techniques for intraaortic balloon pump insertion that allow greater mobility are being developed for patients who require long term ventricular support. The goal of ambulation in these patients is to prevent potential complications associated with prolonged immobility. This paper reviews the use of the common iliac artery as an alternate site for intraaortic balloon pump insertion that allows the patient to ambulate and exercise. Pre and post procedure management as well as potential complications of intraaortic balloon pump insertion are discussed.
