Emphysematous gastritis associated with mucormycosis in a patient with fulminant myocarditis requiring veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
We present the case of a 37-year-old male who admitted to our hospital with fever, weakness, limb pain for 6 days and dyspnea for 14 hours .The patient had no immune related diseases.He was rapidly diagnosed with fulminant myocarditis and progressed to severe cardiogenic shock during the early stage.Then he was treated with V-A extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). It is worth mentioning that the patient's peripheral blood was taken for metagenomic Next-Generation Sequencing(mNGS) upon admission and the results did not find any pathogenic bacteria.But there is no further examination(such as coronary angiography and myocardial biopsy) to determine the etiology of myocarditis.PMID:34852632 | DOI:10.17235/reed.2021.8477/2021

Abstract: The American Heart Association scientific statement on cardiogenic shock and the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative have provided the impetus to advance knowledge and development of national guidelines for cardiogenic shock. We evaluate the current state of knowledge surrounding cardiogenic shock and limitations to the development of national guidelines.
A small pilot study suggests that an injection of a patient's own fat cells can help ease the often-excruciating heel pain brought on by a condition known as plantar fasciitis.
