Abstract

The case of a 66-year-old male with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock is presented. Because of failed primary PCI, after stabilisation of ischaemia and haemodynamics by medication and IABP he was transferred to a distantly located cardiosurgery unit. This patient underwent successful emergency CABG on the second day after infarction. The problem of transporting a patient with AMI and cardiogenic shock to a distant site and the problem of emergency CABG in such high-risk patients is discussed.
