PMID:  21440156     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Left ventricular rupture is a highly lethal, but rare, complication of myocardial infarction. We report the first case of a postinfarction, intraoperative left ventricular apical rupture during an off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting due to the application of apical suction used to expose target vessels.
