PMID:  7226589     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Cross-sectional echocardiography was used to directly visualize abnormal wall motion and detect the site of ventricular septal rupture in a patient with acute inferior myocardial infarction. The presence of the defect was confirmed by injecting indocyanine green into the left ventricle at the time of cardiac catheterization. Cross-sectional echocardiography provides a rapid, atraumatic means for evaluating patients with complicated acute myocardial infarction.
