During cesarean hysterectomy for a placenta accreta, a 36-year-old parturient underwent a massive resuscitation for profound bleeding and also suffered a pulmonary embolus leading to cardiac arrest. Chest compressions and epinephrine were required for resucitation. When surgery was complete, she was taken to the intensive care unit on an epinephrine infusion and inhaled nitric oxide but was brought back to the operating room after 3 h for surgical exploration. Echocardiography revealed a poorly contracting left ventricle, and an intra-aortic balloon pump was inserted. She gradually recovered full function and was discharged home after 35 days.
