BACKGROUND:: The use of percutaneous left ventricular assist devices in patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock (AMICS) is evolving. The aim of the study was to assess the long-term outcome of patients with AMICS depending on early initiation of Impella CP
METHODS:: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent PCI and Impella CP
RESULTS:: A total of 73 consecutive patients (69±12 years old, 27.4% female) were supported with Impella CP
