ABSTRACT

We report a case of severe post partum cadiomyopathy in severe cardiogenic shock, treated successfully and urgently with the implantation of Left Ventricular Assist device. The patient recovered a normal left ventricle function shortly after implantation. This case illustrates the crucial place of left ventricular assist device in severe post partum cardiomyopathy as a bridge to recovery as well as a bridge to transplantation.
