July 7, 2020

How common is it to see stroke in a patient with cardiogenic shock?

Navin Kapur, MD, FAHA, FACC, FSCAI, is the executive director of the Cardiovascular Center for Research and Innovation at Tufts Medical Center, and he also leads the Cardiogenic Shock Working Group, a multi-center working group collecting data on all shock phenotypes to evaluate therapeutic outcomes. Dr. Kapur and his colleagues at Tufts Medical Center, and several other institutions, recently published an evaluation of 10 years of national trends on the incidence and clinical outcomes of stroke in cardiogenic shock patients due to STEMI. The study included patients over 10 years from 2005 - 2014. The stroke rate in the cohort increased from 3.1% to 5.0% over this period. There are studies that have shown that patient comorbidities have increased over the years. The study also adjusted for difference in different comorbidities.
