Right ventricular infarction and mitral stenosis: a resuscitation challenge

Abstract : We report the case of a 49-year-old woman who experienced an inferior myocardial infarction with right ventricular extension, poorly tolerated, partly due to a severe rheumatic mitral stenosis discovered during the hospitalization. Following an initial emergent mechanical circulatory support with femoro-femoral extracorporeal life support (ECLS), the patient had the mitral valve replaced, and the arterio-venous ECLS was removed for a right ventricular assistance device. After seven weeks, she was discharged and fully recovered.
