A Case of Post-Myocardial Infarction Ventricular Septal Rupture and Intramyocardial Dissection

Author(s): Jessica Huang, Michael Bourne, Benjamin Rosenfeld, Federico Mordini, Christian Nagy, Andrew Chen

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR), albeit rare, is a deadly consequence of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Our patient described here presented with both post-infarction VSR and intramyocardial dissection (IMD) of the right ventricle (RV), a subtype of left ventricular free wall rupture (LVFWR). This case highlights the importance of prompt diagnosis of these post-myocardial infarction (MI) complications and the current limitations of surgical and percutaneous repair.
