Prolonged left ventricular unloading prior to revascularization in cardiogenic shock associated with complete ventricular recovery.

The use of percutaneous mechanical circulatory support (MCS) in high-risk coronary intervention and cardiogenic shock is associated with improved ability to obtain complete revascularization. However, whether prolonged left ventricular unloading and mechanical circulatory support prior to coronary revascularization in acute myocardial infarct patients… CONTINUE READING
