Background: The second edition of the German-Austrian S3 guideline contains updated evidence-based recommendations for the treatment of patients with infarction-related cardiogenic shock (ICS), whose mortality is several times higher than that of patients with a hemodynamically stable myocardial infarction (1).

Methods: In five consensus conferences, the experts developed 95 recommendations-including two statements-and seven algorithms with concrete instructions.

Results: Recanalization of the coronary vessel whose occlusion led to the infarction is crucial for the survival of patients with ICS. Read More

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Mar;100(12):e25159

Department of Cardiology, Wuhan Wuchang Hospital, Wuchang Hospital Affiliated to Wuhan University of Science and Technology, Hubei, China.

Background: The survival benefit and safety of Impella support versus intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation (IABP) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock were investigated in several observational trials that revealed mixed results. Thus, in order to provide new evidence-based medical evidence for clinical treatment, we undertook a meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of Impella versus IABP in AMI complicated by cardiogenic shock.

Methods: We will search the EMBASE, Web of Knowledge, PubMed, ClinicalTrials. Read More

Dynamic left ventricular outflow tract gradient resulting from Takotsubo cardiomyopathy ameliorated by intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation: a case report.

Eur Heart J Case Rep 2021 Mar 3;5(3):ytab082. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Department of Cardiology, Mater Private Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a variant of acute coronary syndrome with characteristic acute left ventricular apical ballooning. Uncommonly, there can be associated left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction causing cardiogenic shock refractory to inotropic support. The use of afterload-reducing mechanical support such as intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) counterpulsation is not routinely employed in instances of this kind. Read More

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2021 Apr 24;70(2):63-67. Epub 2021 Feb 24.

Service de chirurgie cardiaque, Pôle thorax-vaisseaux - CHU Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble, France.

Objective: The objective of our study is to detail our experience relating to ECMO implantations for post-cardiotomy refractory shock, by analyzing the pre-ECMO factors (history, type of surgery, LVEF), factors relating to ECMO (implantation time, duration) and post-ECMO factors (weaning, complications) in order to highlight those possibly associated with high mortality.

Methods: This is a univariate and multivariate retrospective study of ECMO data implemented between 2011 and 2019 at the Grenoble Alpes University Hospital Center following cardiac surgery. The time to implantation of ECMO was less than 3hours (intraoperative) between 3 and 24hours (early postoperative) and between 24 and 48hours after aortic unclamping (late postoperative). Read More

External validation and comparison of the CardShock and IABP-SHOCK II risk scores in real-world cardiogenic shock patients.

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care 2020 Jan 31. Epub 2020 Jan 31.

Intensive Cardiac Care Unit, Cardiology Department, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, CIBERCV, Spain.

Early intra-aortic balloon pump in acute decompensated heart failure complicated by cardiogenic shock: Rationale and design of the randomized Altshock-2 trial.

Am Heart J 2021 03 16;233:39-47. Epub 2020 Dec 16.

Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, IRCCS ISMETT, UPMC Italy, Palermo, Italy.

Background: Cardiogenic shock (CS) is a systemic disorder associated with dismal short-term prognosis. Given its time-dependent nature, mechanical circulatory support may improve survival. Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) had gained widespread use because of the easiness to implant and the low rate of complications; however, a randomized trial failed to demonstrate benefit on mortality in the setting of acute myocardial infarction.

Percutaneous left ventricular assist support is associated with less pulmonary congestion and lower rate of pneumonia in patients with cardiogenic shock.

Open Heart 2020 11;7(2)

Division of Cardiology, Pulmonology, and Vascular Medicine, Medical Faculty, Heinrich-Heine University, Düsseldorf, Germany

Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of acute left ventricular unloading by percutaneous left ventricular assist device on pulmonary congestion and pneumonia in patients with cardiogenic shock (CS).
