- VA-ECMO for refractory PCCS needs to be started early when inotropes don’t work and needs to be customized to patient and surgical situation, including a combination with IABP
- LV unloading is mandatory and minimal pulmonary flow needs to be preserved as much as possible
- Anticipation or prevention is a key point for the use of IABP and probably Levosimendan in selected cases
- Selective LV support or combined VAD are promising options
- TEE is absolutely essential for the indication, the setting up, the follow up and the weaning of MCS
