Prompt recognition of acute right ventricular failure is essential in order to provide timely hemodynamic support. We report a case of a patient with severe mitral regurgitation complicated by cardiogenic shock that failed to improve with left ventricular support alone. The recognition of concomitant right ventricular failure led to the addition of a right ventricular support device, resulting in dramatic hemodynamic improvement. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
