Cardiogenic Shock

This page includes content on technologies to treat cardiogenic shock, including percutaneous ventricular assist devices (pVAD), intra-aortic balloon pumps (IABP) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). This condition occurs when the heart can no longer pump enough oxygenated blood to the body. The most common cause of cardiogenic shock is damage to the heart from a severe heart attack. The standard of care for this condition for more than 20 years has a 50 percent survival rate, but improvements have recently been seen in studies using early pVAD intervention prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Two devices where safety is being called into question based on clinical data that is being questioned. The Cook Zilver PTX paclitaxel-eluting peripheral stent is among the devices included in a study questioning long-term safety of paclitaxel. The Abiomed Impella RP had higher than expected mortality in its post-approval study, possibly due to poor patient selection and implanting the device too late to aid the patient.

The Abiomed Impella RP had higher than expected mortality in its post approval study, much higher than in its pre-market approval study. The vendor and the FDA believe this might be due to poor patient selection and implanting the device too late to aid the patient.
