Abstract

Left ventricular rupture is a fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction, however accurate preoperative diagnosis is still difficult. We experienced a postinfarction left ventricular rupture patient whose symptoms and radiologic findings mimicked those of acute intramural hematoma of the aorta. Upon emergency operation, he was proven to have a postinfarction LV rupture and underwent successful surgery. We herein report the case with a brief review of the literature.
