PMID:  6861507     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A known hypertensive presented to the hospital with sudden onset of chest pain and shock. ECG, cardiac enzymes, aortogram and echocardiogram were normal. Hemodynamic monitoring and radionucleotide angiogram demonstrated a severely dyskinetic right ventricle. Autopsy revealed proximal aortic dissection with extramural compression of right coronary artery, resulting in right ventricular dysfunction.
