Ventricular assist devices (VADs) and intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABPs) are important tools that provide hemodynamic support to patients in cardiogenic shock. The Impella Recover 2.5 is a percutaneous VAD that provides temporary circulatory support. We report the case of a patient who required the combined support of both an IABP and the Impella device.
