Surgical implications of intraoperative postinfarction ventricular rupture.

PMID:  3698709     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This case report documents that ventricular myocardial rupture after acute infarction may seal with clot, only to rupture again with potentially lethal consequences. At exploration, the clot over a fresh rupture was intact. As closure was started, the clot disrupted, causing severe hemorrhage. Rupture was successfully repaired and the patient survived.
