PMID:  18778298     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A left ventricular posterior-inferior free wall rupture without pseudo aneurysm following inferior myocardial infarction was identified in a 40-year-old male patient. Coronary angiography of the patient demonstrated a total occlusion of the circumflex artery. Repair of the rupture was performed during an elective surgery carried out 15 days after the infarction. We approved to discuss this rarely encountered clinical case with the cases in the literature.
