Trends and Outcomes of Mechanical Circulatory Support in Peripartum Women, 2002-2014: A Nationwide Inpatient Sample Analysis

PERIPARTUM CARDIAC complications account for 41% of all maternal deaths in the United States.1 In parturients with cardiogenic shock from peripartum cardiomyopathy, amniotic fluid embolism, and pulmonary emboli, mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices are increasingly used. Such devices include intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABP), veno-venous and veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), left ventricular assist devices, and paracorporeal ventricular assist devices (PVAD).2-4 Respiratory syndromes exacerbated by pregnancy, such as influenza-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome, are also potentially treatable using MCS.
