Twelve university hospitals set up pan-European recruiting network with more than 45 cardiovascular centres to test early ECMO in patients with cardiogenic shock once and for all
An extensive network of the foremost cardio-vascular hospitals from nine European countries are working together in the EURO SHOCK trial to determine the efficacy and cost benefit of very early ECMO in patients with cardiogenic shock. On 12th December 2018 investigators gathered at the Royal Society of Medicine in London for the last preparations before the trial begins. The recruitment target is to randomise more than 400 patients in 34 months starting from 1st February 2019.
Every year across Europe more than 50’000 patients are diagnosed with Cardiogenic Shock. Women and the elderly are at highest risk to this severe condition, which is a complex and hemodynamically diverse state of end-organ hypoperfusion.
On 12th December 2018, EURO SHOCK will be having the official kick-off meeting for all its European recruitment centres. The meeting will take place from 10AM - 4PM (UK Time) at the Royal Society of Medicine Wimpole Street in London, UK. For delegates arriving one day before, there will be a joint dinner near the conference venue.
