Cardiac rupture is a life-threatening event that often occurs after myocardial infarction and is often associated with significant death. Pericardiocentesis provides hemodynamic short-term improvement; however, patients with cardiac rupture require an emergency operation. This report describes a new procedure used to repair left ventricle free wall rupture after myocardial infarction. The technique described repairs the rupture off-pump and without the need for suturing. Midterm results demonstrate the feasibility and durability of this procedure.
