Abstract

In a case of acute cardiac allograft failure requiring temporary mechanical circulatory support (MCS), serial electrocardiograms (ECG) denoted the degree of myocardial inflammation and damage caused by severe rejection and subsequent recovery. This case highlights the relevance of the ECG during temporary MCS and suggests that resolution of acute electrocardiographic abnormalities might be a marker of myocardial recovery to help guide appropriate timing for weaning from MCS in the setting of acute graft failure.
