Anteroseptal myocardial infarction complicated by right ventricular myocardial infarction.

PMID:  6606924     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 73 year old man presented with an acute anteroseptal myocardial infarction. He became progressively hypotensive without signs of left heart decompensation or major rhythm disturbances. Swan-Ganz catheterisation revealed a pattern of right ventricular infarction and under appropriate treatment the patient recovered remarkably well. The importance of recognition of right ventricular infarction is stressed especially in this case where an anteroseptal myocardial infarction was present without the usual left posterior infarction.
