Interestingly, the International Benchmark Registry (250 US and non-US centers) of over 20 000 patients treated with IABP suggested that 1 in 5 cases of IABP implantation were for CS and 1 in 5 as an adjunct to high-risk PCI. 11 In the context of AMI, IABP was used more frequently during CS (30%) or an adjunct to PCI (30%). 10 Analysis of the CathPCI Registry from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry of patients who underwent high-risk PCI (10% in CS and 80% ST-segmentelevation myocardial
