In the SHOCK trial, patients with cardiogenic shock were treated aggressively with inotropic drugs, intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation, and thrombolytic drugs. Patients were also randomised to either coronary angiography plus percutaneous intervention or bypass surgery within six hours, or medical stabilisation (with revascularisation only permitted after 54 hours). Although the 30 day primary end point did not achieve statistical significance, the death rates progressively diverged, and by 12 months the early revascularisation group showed a significant mortality benefit (55%) compared with the medical stabilisation group (70%).
