Intraaortic balloon pump counterpulsation and cerebral autoregulation : an observational study
Bellapart, Judith, Geng, Shureng, Dunster, Kimble, Timms, Daniel L., Barnett, Adrian G., Boots, Robert, & Fraser, John (2010) Intraaortic balloon pump counterpulsation and cerebral autoregulation : an observational study. BMC Anesthesiology, 10(3).
The use of Intra-aortic counterpulsation is a well established supportive therapy for patients in cardiac failure or after cardiac surgery. Blood pressure variations induced by counterpulsation are transmitted to the cerebral arteries, challenging cerebral autoregulatory mechanisms in order to maintain a stable cerebral blood flow. This study aims to assess the effects on cerebral autoregulation and variability of cerebral blood flow due to intra-aortic balloon pump and inflation ratio weaning.
