Abstract

The case of a 73-year-old female with an acute myocardial infarction, treated successfully with primary percutaneous coronary intervention who developed subacute left ventricular free wall rupture, is presented. The diagnosis was established by echocardiography at bedside. She underwent urgent cardiac surgery with patch glue repair of left ventricular free wall rupture and selective revascularisation. The recovery was uneventful and the patient was discharged from the hospital on the 11th postoperative day in good condition. At 6 month follow-up, the patient remained well, without any symptoms.
