We report the case of a 72-year-old man with ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction and severe intra-ventricular gradient (>40 mmHg), who died with left ventricular rupture (LVR). We postulate that severe intra-ventricular gradient detectable at admission may be related to subsequent LVR and proposed as a risk factor for LVR.
