Mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarction, such as left ventricular free-wall or septal rupture, pseudo-aneurysm or true aneurysm, are uncommon but potentially fatal conditions, that require an early diagnosis and management. We describe a case of post-infarction ventricular septal rupture with pseudoaneurysm formation included in the right ventricle.

Abstract

Mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarction, such as left ventricular free-wall or septal rupture, pseudo-aneurysm or true aneurysm, are uncommon but potentially fatal conditions, that require an early diagnosis and management. We describe a case of post-infarction ventricular septal rupture with pseudoaneurysm formation included in the right ventricle.
