Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The presence of prominent left atrial v-waves following interventricular septal rupture in acute myocardial infarction have been reported in the past. Hemodynamic profile obtained in one particular case highlighted some of the varying aspects of pressure wave, oxygen saturation, and compliance abnormalities that may also be present in such cases. The presence of large left atrial a-waves rather than v-waves was one of the findings.
