Authors: Shah AH, Puri R, Kalra A
Despite advances in percutaneous coronary interventions and their widespread use, mortality in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock has remained very high, and treatment options are limited. Limited evidences exist, supporting many of the routinely used therapies in treating these patients. In the present article, we discuss cardiogenic shock complicating myocardial infarction in general and an update on the currently available treatment options, including inotropes and vasopressor, coronary revascularization, mechanical circulatory support devices, mechanical complications and long-term outcomes.
