Prime Time for Temporary Mechanical Circulatory Support.

Abstract

Cardiovascular care has witnessed a paradigm shift toward widespread use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS). In this context, the 2015 SCAI/ACC/HFSA/STS Clinical Expert Consensus Statement on the use of percutaneous mechanical circulatory support devices in cardiovascular care is a timely and welcome addition to the literature. This consensus statement is an important summary of the state of the field and a valuable method for all who participate in cardiovascular care to ensure up-to-date understanding of the treatment options available.
