PMID:  24380225     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
Rupture of the myocardium due to myocardial infarction is often fatal but when such patients survive, they present with a pseudoaneurysm where the defect is sealed by the pericardium preventing the complete rupture. This is described as a 'contained myocardial rupture'. We describe here a case of left ventricular contained myocardial rupture following an acute myocardial infarction.
