The utilization of mechanical circulatory support devices in high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) has recently evolved. In Saudi Arabia, the use of such devices is under-reported. Here, we present a 36-year-old patient who was admitted to the hospital with a non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction with biventricular dysfunction. A high-risk PCI consist of unprotected left main stenting was performed with the assistance of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation that allowed smooth and successful intervention. Two days later, Impella was used to augment the recovery of the myocardium. The implementation of this approach helped our patient hemodynamically and allowed the recovery of the myocardium.
