Case Study
Cardiac complications, including perioperative myocardial infarction, are associated with significant risk for morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery. Since many of these procedures are elective, there is adequate time to identify patients at increased risk using validated risk indices. The following case report describes a patient undergoing laparoscopic nissen fundiplication who exhibited ST segment elevation intraoperatively, which further progressed to acute myocardial infarction. The potential risk factors, complications, treatment, and prevention of myocardial ischemia will be discussed.

    Cardiogenic shock (CS) remains the main cause of death in patients with myocardial infarction. Conservative treatment alone does not sufficiently improve prognosis. Mortality in CS can only be significantly reduced with revascularization, both surgical and percutaneous. However some patients...
