Aortic Balloon Counterpulastion in Myocardial Infarction Related Shock (IABPSHOCK)

This study has been completed.

Last verified: April 2007
History: No changes posted
The role of intra aortic balloon counterpulsation in patients experiencing acute myocardial infarction with shock is not established. We hypothesised that use of such a device would lead to improved outcomes in these patients.

Condition Intervention
Myocardial Infarction Cardiogenic Shock Device: Intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Intra-Aortic Balloon Counterpulsation in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction Complicated by Cardiogenic Shock - The Prospective, Randomised IABP SHOCK Trial for Attenuation of Multi-Organ Dysfunction Syndrome

Detailed Description:

Patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with cardiogenic shock (CS) are often treated with Intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation (IABP) although the evidence to support this is limited. We conducted a prospective, randomised clinical trial, of IABP as an addition to PCI centred therapy, in patients with AMI complicated by CS.

45 patients with AMI and CS undergoing PCI were randomised to care with or without IABP. Over 4 days, APACHE II scores, haemodynamic parameters, inflammatory markers and BNP levels were collected to assess the impact of IABP treatment on CS triggered multi organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS).
