Two cases of blunt myocardial injury to the region of the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery causing death are described. In one case, direct injury appeared to have resulted in myocardial infarction, whereas in the other, cardiac arrhythmia (possibly secondary to coronary artery spasm) was implicated. Although apparently uncommon, deaths following blunt injury to the coronary arteries may cause death, but are difficult to predict and prevent.
