LABBE, Javier; QUIROZ, Manuel  e  DROLETT, Nicolás. Air transfer with an aortic balloon counterpulsation of a patient with interventricular septal rupture after myocardial infarction. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2014, vol.33, n.3, pp.228-233. ISSN 0718-8560.

Introduction: Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation (IABC) has been used for many years. IABC serves as circulatory support in patients where definitive care is not in the admission hospital. There are not reports of air transport with IABC in our national reality. Case report: A 62 year old patient with multiple morbid history was derived from Tocopilla to Antofagasta's Regional Hospital (ARH), she consulted for progressive dyspnea and abdominal pain 72 hours ago. We diagnosed acute coronary syndrome and the coronariography informs coronary stenosis of the anterior descending artery in the middle third about 80%. Angioplasty with stent is performed. The patient arrived to UCI, in the physical examination stands mitral pansystolic murmur. Color doppler echocardiography was requested: highlight interventricular comunication (IVC). Counterpulsation balloon is positioned and we planned the air transport to Gustavo Fricke Hospital (HGF). Transfer HRA-HGF was performed uneventfully with stable patient. 3 days after, IVC is closed and maintains IABC. Control echocardiography reports 0.7 mm residual IVC with satisfactory clinical course. At the 13th post-surgical day, the wound becomes infected and she is treated with antibiotic therapy and surgical toilet in 4 opportunities to evolve successfully. The HGF-HRA transfer is done without complications, his recuperation is satisfactory and she is discharged from the ARH. Discussion: There is evidence that the air tranfers with BIAC are safe, always considering factors such as the expansion of gases and electronic failures.
