Abstract

Heart failure patients with pacemaker or defibrillator-associated endocarditis in cardiogenic shock have few treatment options. We present a case of an INTERMACS I patient who developed device infection, sepsis, bacterial pericarditis and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. The patient was stabilized with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and successfully transplanted.
