Abstract: Short-term mechanical circulatory support (ST-MCS) devices have been traditionally deployed in patients with cardiogenic shock, advanced heart failure, cardiovascular collapse, and cardiorespiratory failure. Limitations of the mechanical support devices are typically related to mobility of the patient since the access is frequently through femoral vasculature. This limits the time the patient can be supported by mechanical circulatory support (MCS). We describe deployment of ST-MCS using alternate access such as the subclavian/axillary artery that facilitates ambulation of the patient. These include the deployment of intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) through the subclavian artery, Impella pump through the axillary/subclavian artery, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) using the subclavian artery and jugular vein.
