ABIOMED® at the 29th Journées Européennes de la Société Française de Cardiologie (JESFC) in Paris

The 29th meeting of the Société Française de Cardiologie (SFC) was held in Paris from 16 to 19 January 2019. We talked about cardiogenic shock and the use of cardiac support systems:

Cardiogenic shock (PMI) after myocardial infarction is a relatively common consequence in France. However, the mortality rate remains very high despite all improvements over time.

In an interview with François Roubille, Laurent Bonello highlighted the heart support techniques currently available (e.g. ECMO), which he considers "a real revolution for patients in terms of prognosis".
