Free Wall Rupture and Ventricular Septal Defect Post Acute Anterior Myocardial Infarction
Myocardial free wall rupture is a catastrophic complication of acute myocardial infarction, and prognosis will depend on the prompt diagnosis by echocardiography, extension of infarct size, and prompt surgical treatment. Free wall rupture concomitant with ventricular septal defect (VSD) may be more complicated for management. A case of a 69-year-old man with myocardial free wall rupture and VSD following acute anterior myocardial infarction is presented.
