Abstract

Intraventricular septum (IVS) rending from left ventricular wall after acute myocardial infarction is a rare and dramatic mechanical complication. We describe a patient, who survived after rending of IVS from left ventricular inferoposterior wall after acute myocardial infarction. This complication was diagnosed using transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography and confirmed by 64 MSCT. The patient underwent successful IVS repair plus three coronary artery bypass grafts and inferoposterior wall aneurysm plasty.
