Radiograph is nonspecific for distinguishing these entities from traumatic cardiac rupture and may demonstrate enlargement of the cardiac silhouette.
Cowley, "Blunt traumatic cardiac rupture: a 5-year experience," Annals of Surgery, vol.
Cardiac rupture following a transmural acute MI involving posterobasal myocardium is temporarily contained by a hematoma or permanently by fibrous adhesions, resulting in a pseudoaneurysm formation.
Since the postinfarction myocardial rupture of the posterobasal portion of the heart may be temporarily contained by pseudoaneurysm, it may represent a critical phase in the evolution of the catastrophic event, namely cardiac rupture. Therefore, early diagnosis of this condition is extremely important, and one should be aware of the possibility of complex rupture and pseudoaneurysm formation in patients with posterobasal MI.
Among all of the mice, approximately 63% had cardiac rupture
. The mortality rate of Wip1 -KO mice was as high as 57.14%, while the mortality rate of WT mice was 29.17% after MI; none of the sham-ligated WT or Wip1 -KO mice died [57.14% vs.
However this procedure has several life threatening complications like hemopericardium, cardiac tamponade, clot formation, and cardiac rupture
We report a case of traumatic ventricular septal defect after a penetrating cardiac trauma causing pericardial tamponade and cardiac rupture
In an autopsy series of patients of deaths from acute myocardial infarction (AMI), cardiac rupture
was present in 30.7% patients, with LV rupture in 98% (anterior wall 45%, posterior wall 38%, lateral wall 9% and apex 6%) and right ventricular rupture in 2% (2).
