Resumen

DA COSTA, Daniel et al. Cardiogenic shock secondary to acute myocardial infarction managed with high volume hemofiltration: Report of a case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2009, vol.137, n.10, pp. 1357-1362. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872009001000012.

Cardiogenic shock secondary to acute myocardial infarction unveils a systemic inflammatory response with elevation of cytokines that contribute to hypoperfusion. High volume hemofiltration may remove cytokines in patients with septic shock resulting in hemodynamic improvement and reducing the requirements of norepinephrine. We report a 48 year-old male with cardiogenic shock secondary to acute myocardial infarction who presented a systemic inflammatory response characterized by fever and hemodynamic collapse, without evidence of infection. Its hemodynamic profile was stabilized with high volume hemofiltration.
