The best treatment for cardiac rupture
and abdominal aortic aneurysm begins with proper eating in early life, and the proper treatment of aortic dissection begins with prevention of systemic hypertension at any time in life.
3) Three cases of fatal cardiac rupture
during exercise testing that occurred in an exercise laboratory during an 18-month period are reported.
following a transmural acute MI involving posterobasal myocardium is temporarily contained by a hematoma or permanently by fibrous adhesions, resulting in a pseudoaneurysm formation.
Traumatic injuries of heart reported before are atrioventricular valve insufficiency, aortic insufficiency, VSD, atrial septal defect, coronary artery injury, hemopericardium, cardiac rupture
and cardiac contusion (3, 4).
Surgical repair of the rupture site is the definitive treatment for cardiac rupture
, although there are few data on operative mortality rates.
Objective: Characteristics of legal autopsy cases with cardiac rupture
following myocardial infarction are investigated in this retrospective observational study and the results are compared with a control group consisting of acute myocardial infarction cases without rupture.
