We herein present a case of a patient with a large RA thrombus, likely a thrombus in transit, with subsequent pulmonary emboli who died from cardiogenic shock
following surgical intervention.
and heart failure impose significant morbidity and mortality in patients with fulminant myocarditis.
They received VA ECMO at a single medical center by a single ECMO team directed mainly by cardiothoracic surgeons, which was performed for refractory cardiogenic shock
and various medical conditions (Table 1).
CHICAGO -- Patients who reported using marijuana prior to experiencing an acute MI had significantly lower in-hospital mortality and were less likely to have cardiogenic shock
or require an intra aortic balloon pump than marijuana nonusers with an MI in an eight-state hospital records study, Dr.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pre-market approval (PMA) for its Impella 2.5, Impella CP, Impella 5.0, and Impella LD heart pumps to treat ongoing cardiogenic shock
. In this setting, the Impella heart pumps stabilize the patient's hemodynamics, unload the left ventricle, perfuse the end organs, and allow for recovery of the native heart.
XENIOS has enrolled the first patient in the SynCor clinical trial of its CE-marked i-cor Synchronized Cardiac Assist System for treating cardiogenic shock
The second volume contains case studies, among them cardiogenic shock
after chemotherapy treatment, chemotherapy and chest radiation as risk factors for cardiotoxicity, using cardiac biomarkers in the follow-up of an oncology patient, shortness of breath in a Hodgkin lymphoma patient, and pulmonary artery sarcoma mimicking a pulmonary embolism.
(CS) remains one of the most serious and challenging conditions in cardiology following acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
The patient was in cardiogenic shock
and dopamine drip was started and intravenous Lasix was given.
This case report presents a 5-month-old boy with AFM complicated with CAVB and cardiogenic shock
to emphasise the value of early recognition of the disease and the associated rhythm disturbances, timely interventions and aggressive protocol-based management.
Morbidity and mortality due to scorpion sting are related to acute pulmonary edema, cardiogenic shock
, and multiorgan failure.
For example, the internal audit revealed a situation where vasopressors initially started for suspected post cardiopulmonary bypass vasoplegia were no longer required once it became clear that the hypotensive episode was caused by cardiogenic shock
