Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricular free wall rupture due to acute myocardial infarction (MI) is an infrequent but fatal complication that occurs especially during the 1st week of MI. Emergency surgical intervention is essential but conveys significant operative mortality. Most of the patients die before they reach the operating room. We present a case of percutaneous left ventricular free wall rupture closure complicating acute inferior MI to bridge the time until the patient can be transferred to the surgical department and subjected to surgery.
