Abstract As the proportion of high-risk patients for cardiac surgery increases, use of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation (IABC) has increased, especially in preoperative therapy. Although the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of IABC have been demonstrated, historically higher complication rates have dissuaded some practitioners from using IABC.
