Acute myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock (AMI-CS) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Early mechanical revascularization improves survival, and development of STEMI systems of care has increased the utilization of revascularization in AMI-CS from 19% in 2001 to 60% in 2014. Mechanical circulatory support devices are increasingly used to support and prevent hemodynamic collapse. These devices provide different levels of univentricular and biventricular support, have different mechanisms of actions, and provide different physiologic effects. Herein, the authors review the definition, incidence, pathophysiology, and treatment of AMI-CS.
