CULPRIT-SHOCK: los resultados a 1 año continúan soportando tratar solo la arteria culpable

ESC 2018 | CULPRIT-SHOCK: 1-Year Results Continue to Support Treatment of the Culprit Artery Only

ESC 2018 | CULPRIT-SHOCK: 1-Year Results Continue to Support Treatment of the Culprit Artery Only

Increases in the rates of revascularization and heart failure do not justify the early mortality advantage shown by treatment of the culprit artery only in patients with acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. The 1-year follow-up of the CULPRIT-SHOCK trial reinforces the idea of only treating the culprit artery, with an option for revascularization of

Noradrenaline seems superior to adrenaline in patients with cardiogenic shock

Noradrenaline (or norepinephrine) seems a safer choice than adrenaline (epinephrine) in patients undergoing acute myocardial infarction complicated with cardiogenic shock, according to the outcomes of this randomized study. Patients receiving adrenaline more often developed refractory shock, which led to early termination of this study. The administration of adrenaline was associated to over increased cardiac rate,

Complete Revascularization Is Beneficial in Acute MI with Cardiogenic Shock

Around half of all cases of ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) come alongside lesions in another vessel, for which the current strategy is complete revascularization in one or two steps. However, there are no large-scale studies analyzing patients who also present cardiogenic shock; we only have observational studies with inconclusive results influenced by several

Contemporary Ventricular Assist Devices: Hemodynamic Consequences

Courtesy of Dr. Agustín Vecchia. Despite current technological advancements and improvement in reperfusion rates in a setting of infarction, cardiogenic shock still is a relatively frequent complication with a mortality rate close to 50%. The need to augment cardiac output in these patients and the fact that the popular intraaortic balloon counterpulsation has not been able to
