Special Issue Introduction

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention with stent implantation (pPCI) has become the standard of care treatment of acute myocardial infarction when performed in a timely fashion by expert operators in a pPCI center. Despite the appropriate implementation of the treatment, a small but clinically relevant fraction of patients may present an ominous outcome during follow-up leading to heart failure decompensation, re-hospitalization, or even death. In this regard, cardiogenic shock secondary to acute myocardial infarction occurs in approximately 8% of the cases, but the mortality rate in this cohort may be as high as 50% despite current therapies. New research is currently in progress in order to improve the prognosis of patients suffering from ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. In this issue, we will review potential areas of research both during the diagnosis and the therapeutic phase beyond stent implantation.
