Early Escalation of Mechanical Circulatory Support Stabilizes and Potentially Rescues Patients in Refractory Cardiogenic Shock

Limited progress has been made in the management of cardiogenic shock (CS). Morbidity and mortality of refractory CS remain high. The effects of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) are promising, although many aspects are elusive.

TCT-366 Hyperoxemic Supersaturated Oxygen Therapy in Patients With Acute Anterior Myocardial Infarction Reduces Infarct Size and Microvascular Obstruction: A Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging Analysis

Cardiac Fibroblast Activation in Patients Early After Acute Myocardial Infarction: Integration with MR Tissue Characterization and Subsequent Functional Outcome

After acute myocardial infarction (AMI), fibroblast activation protein (FAP) upregulation exceeds the infarct region. We sought further insights into the physiologic relevance by correlating FAP-targeted PET with tissue characteristics from cardiac MRI (CMR) and functional outcome.
