Fulminant myokarditis behandlet med ny perkutant anlagt assist device


Several fulminant myocarditis (FM) resulting in early death from intractable cardiogenic shock have been reported. FM is characterized by the onset of cardiac symptoms in otherwise young healthy patients, rapidly resulting in severe ventricular dysfunction and cardiogenic shock. Complete recovery is possible if the patient is successfully supported by mechanical circulatory support during the acute phase of the illness. We report the case of a young patient with viral myocarditis who was successfully weaned from an Impella Recover LP 2.5 assist device with the recovery of myocardial function.
