The use of the IABP, in addition to standard care, in high-risk cardiac patients undergoing major noncardiac surgery is feasible and may result in improved perioperative outcomes at 30 days compared with standard care alone, while maintaining acceptable safety with respect to vascular accesss-related complications.
