We report here a successful case of recovery from cardiogenic shock resulting from ischemic cardiomyopathy, treated by using a left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The LVAD was successfully explanted at the time of simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting and left ventricular restoration after recovery from end-organ dysfunction by LVAD support.
