Cardiorenal syndrome worsens outcome in patients with decompensated chronic heart failure, and complicates recompensation by medical therapy. Mechanical circulatory support has the potential to improve renal function, and likely mitigates diuretic resistance in patients with severe cardiorenal syndrome. The Reitan catheter pump (RCP) is a novel temporary percutaneous circulatory support system for reducing cardiac afterload and increasing renal preload. Here, we report on the first-in-man use of the 10F-version of the RCP device, which was associated with favorable effects on hemodynamics and diuresis. Further investigation to evaluate safety and efficacy of this promising approach is warranted.
