The Association Between Obesity and In-Hospital Mortality in Patients with Cardiogenic Shock Complicating Acute Myocardial Infarction
- Obesity is paradoxically associated with favorable mortality outcomes in acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
- Association between obesity and in-hospital mortality among patients with cardiogenic shock (CS) complicating AMI (N=290,894) was retrospectively studied.
- Obese patients had lower in-hospital mortality compared with nonobese patients (28.2% vs 36.5%, respectively), but key baseline differences in the obese group may explain this association.
Dr. Jason Wollmuth: Case Review of Complete Revascularization for a Patient in Cardiogenic Shock with Severe Multi-Vessel Disease
Dr. Jason Wollmuth presents a complex case of a patient in cardiogenic shock with severe multi-vessel disease. He feels that placing the Impella® heart pump made the procedure safer, and led to a more complete revascularization. Dr. Wollmuth also used a heart team decision-making approach. The patient is now walking up to a mile a … Continue reading “Dr. Jason Wollmuth: Case Review of Complete Revascularization for a Patient in Cardiogenic Shock with Severe Multi-Vessel Disease”
Dr. Siby Ayalloore presents a compelling case of decision-making for a very functional 90 year old patient with left main disease including mid-LAD disease and proximal circ disease. As a heart failure physician, he collaborated with surgeons and interventionalists. This heart team approach led to the decision to perform a successful high-risk PCI.
