Abstract

In the era of early and invasive therapeutic approaches, myocardial rupture has become an uncommon complication of myocardial infarction. We report an uncommon complication following inferior myocardial infarction with both left ventricular and right ventricular rupture and subsequent communication via a shared pseudoaneurysm. (Echocardiography 2010;27:E83-E86).
