Feasibility of Early Mechanical Support During Mechanical Reperfusion of Acute Myocardial Infarct Cardiogenic Shock

O’Neill, W., Basir, M., Dixon, S., Patel, K., Schreiber, T., Almany, S.
Although only preliminary, initial experience suggests that rapid door-to-support times are feasible. This approach results in the rapid reversal of the shock state in most patients, allowing operators to obtain TIMI flow grade III rates comparable to those in patients with non-shock ST-segment elevation MI and may improve survival. Given these encouraging pilot data, a large formal quality initiative entitled the Detroit Cardiogenic Shock Initiative has been launched.
