Direct angioplasty is an accepted treatment for acute myocardial infarction and has resulted in stabilization and improvement in the clinical, electrocardiographic, and hemodynamic consequences of acute myocardial infarction. This case demonstrates the effectiveness of coronary perfusion as a method of resuscitation during cardiogenic shock and asystole in a patient with massive acute diaphragmatic and right ventricular infarction. Utilization of prolonged balloon inflation in this case obviated the need for emergency coronary bypass surgery and provided the patient with remarkable and almost complete recovery of left and right ventricular function.
