Abstract

A case of a 62-year-old female with acute inferior myocardial infarction with right ventricular involvement is presented. The patient developed cardiogenic shock due to interventricular septum rupture. Pharmacological agents and intraaortic balloon counterpulsation restored normal circulation which enabled elective surgical treatment 14 days after the onset of symptoms.
