PURPOSE: Right ventricular failure is the most common cause of death in patients with pulmonary hypertension. In this patient population, cardiogenic shock is most commonly seen in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). The aim of this study is to compare the in-hospital patient characteristics and outcomes in cardiogenic shock in patients with and without PAH/CTEPH from a large national database.
