Difficult decisions in STEMI patients with cardiogenic shock

Learning Objectives

  • To learn optimal primary PCI strategy in STEMI with cardiogenic shock
  • To assess options for haemodynamic support beyond intra-aortic balloon pumping
  • To discuss how to deal with mechanical complications in STEMI

  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: STEMI, cardiogenic shock and multivessel disease - going beyond PCI of culprit lesion?
  • Case 2: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or / and percutaneous mechanical circulatory support as first choice or only after failed intra-aortic...
  • Case 3: post-infarction ventricular septal rupture
  • Case 4: acute mitral insufficiency
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
