MEDINA, Libardo A et al. Prolonged successful cerebrocardiopulmonary resuscitation: A case report. Rev. Colom. Cardiol. [online]. 2010, vol.17, n.1, pp.28-32. ISSN 0120-5633.

We present the case of a 57 year old patient patient who underwent a diagnostic coronariography that showed three-vessel coronary disease. He presented cardiorespiratory arrest immediately at the end of the procedure; basic and advanced resuscitation maneuvers were started during a two hours period. During the resuscitation, primary angioplasty and stent implantation in the circumflex artery was performed. The patient recovered spontaneous circulation and was transferred to the coronary care unit. On the second day, a successful myocardial revascularization was performed and was discharged 16 days after the event without evident neurological deficit.

Keywords : sudden death; cardiopulmonary resuscitation; angioplasty.
