Preventing LVAD implantation by early short-term mechanical support and prolonged inodilator therapy : A case series with acute refractory cardiogenic shock treated with veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and optimised medical strategy.


Cardiogenic shock continues to be a life-threatening condition carrying a high mortality and morbidity, where the prognosis remains poor despite intensive modern treatment modalities. In recent years, mainly technical improvements have led to a more widespread use of short- and long-term mechanical circulatory support, such as veno-arterial extracorporeal… (More)
