Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 02, 2022

Cardiogenic shock (CS) occurs up to 10% of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and is associated with a high (> 50%) in-hospital mortality. Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices, such as Impella CP, are increasingly being used in patients with AMI complicated by CS. Recent data highlighted the issue of vascular complication and bleeding events in cardiogenic shock patients treated with Impella. In this setting, the “Single-access for High-risk PCI” (SHiP) technique and the...
