UNLABELLED Acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock is one of the main reasons of death in severely ill patients. One of the main indications for intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation is acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock. Aortic counterpulsation is associated with the risk of several important complications: bleeding, thrombosis, thrombocytopenia, limb ischemia, and aortic wall damage. The analysis of complications is necessary to better understand… CONTINUE READING
