Among patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), cardiogenic shock (CS) is the leading cause of death, complicating up to 10% of admissions. Introduction of early revascularization strategies and mechanical ventricular support have seen short-term mortality associated with CS fall from 70% to 80% in the 1970s to approximately 50% to 60% in the 1990s. Previous studies reported a higher incidence of CS after AMI in women (11.6% vs 8.3%). The aims of this study were to determine… CONTINUE READING
