Abstract

Myocardial rupture is an important and catastrophic complication of acute myocardial infarction. A dramatic form of this complication is a left ventricular free wall rupture (LVFWR). A 70-year-old man with acute inferoposterolateral myocardial infarction and single-vessel coronary artery disease underwent emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The circumflex coronary artery was successfully stented with a drug-eluting stent. Fifty days after PCI the patient experienced progressive fatigue and chest pain with haemodynamic instability. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a covered LVFWR of the lateral wall. The patient underwent successful emergent surgical repair of the LVFWR. In the current era of swift PCI, mechanical complications of acute myocardial infarction, such as LVFWR, are rare. The consequences, however, are haemodynamic deterioration and imminent death. This rare diagnosis should always be considered when new cardiovascular symptoms or haemodynamic instability develop after myocardial infarction, even beyond one month after the initial event. Timely diagnosis and emergency surgery are required for successful treatment of this devastating complication.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 June 2018.
All research outputs
#10,486,116
of 13,153,703 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#321
of 505 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#201,747
of 268,816 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#8
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,153,703 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 505 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,816 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
