Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The management of cardiogenic shock (CS) remains challenging despite the available treatment options. Furthermore, only a few therapeutic interventions have been shown to clearly improve the prognosis and outcomes of CS. Significant areas of uncertainty still remain, particular regarding risk stratification, the use of mechanical circulatory support and medical therapies for these complex conditions in patients. Therefore, in order to improve patients outcomes, research is urgently needed that addresses the substantial knowledge gaps in the management of CS.

In this Special Issue, we aim to collect original research and review articles that focus on:

  • Prognosis and risk stratification in CS;
  • Cardiac arrest and CS;
  • The roles of medical therapies and mechanical circulatory support in CS;
  • Evolving therapies in CS.

Prof. Dr. Konstantinos Karatolios
Guest Editor
