Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intramyocardial (or subepicardial) hematomas are uncommon conditions that occur mostly after myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), coronary artery bypass surgery, cardiac surgery, or chest trauma. Coronary perforation is a rare complication of PCI and the subset of patients developing an intramyocardial hematoma, usually considered a catastrophic event, is even rarer. We describe here the case of 63-year-old man in whom an intramyocardial hematoma with epicardial rupture occurred after PCI. The patient was treated conservatively with a successful outcome. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2012.
