This study sought to evaluate long-term mortality and major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in patients with cardiac arrest (CA) and cardiogenic shock (CS) complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This was a retrospective cohort study using an administrative claims database. AMI patients from January 1, 2010 to May 31, 2018 were stratified into CA + CS, CA only, CS only, and AMI alone cohorts. Outcomes of interest were long-term mortality and MACCE (death, AMI, cerebrovascular accident, unplanned revascularization) in AMI survivors. A total 163,071 AMI patients were included with CA + CS, CA only, and CS only in 2.4%, 5.0%, and 4.0%, respectively. The CA + CS cohort had higher rates of multiorgan failure, mechanical circulatory support use and less frequent coronary angiography use. In-hospital mortality was noted in 10,686 (6.6%) patients – CA + CS (48.8%), CA only (35.9%), CS only (24.1%), and AMI alone (2.9%; p < 0.001). Over 23.5 ± 21.7 months follow-up after hospital discharge, patients with CA + CS (hazard ratio [HR] 1.36 [95% confidence interval {CI} 1.19 to 1.55]), CA only (HR 1.16 [95% CI 1.08 to 1.25]), CS only (HR 1.39 [95% CI 1.29 to 1.50]) had higher all-cause mortality compared with AMI alone (all p < 0.001). Presence of CS, either alone (HR 1.22 [95% CI 1.16 to 1.29]; p < 0.001) or with CA (HR 1.18 [95% CI 1.07 to 1.29]; p < 0.001), was associated with higher MACCE compared with AMI alone. In conclusion, CA + CS, CA, and CS were associated with worse long-term survival. CA and CS continue to influence outcomes beyond the index hospitalization in AMI survivors.
