Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 77-year-old man with anterior ST-elevated myocardial infarction and lateral myocardial rupture underwent successful percutaneous revascularization. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) unveiled a disseminated metastatic cancer, likely responsible not only for a prothrombotic paraneoplastic syndrome but also for ventricular metastasis and myocardial rupture. The patient unfortunately died because of noncardiovascular complications of cancer.
