Delayed two-step free wall rupture of the right and left ventricular wall after myocardial infarction


Emmert, M Y; Weber, B; Theusinger, O M; Hoerstrup, S P; Falk, V; Grünenfelder, J; Plass, A (2011). Delayed two-step free wall rupture of the right and left ventricular wall after myocardial infarction. Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon, 59(4):248-250.

Abstract

We present a 68-year-old female who suffered extensive complications after severe myocardial infarction (MI) in the circumflex (CX) territory. At 24 hours after the initial event, the patient presented with a covered right ventricular free wall rupture (FWR) which was followed by a rupture of the left posterior wall ten days later. We report here on a rare case of delayed two-step biventricular FWR after severe MI in the CX territory.
