Acute anterior wall myocardial infarction secondary to blunt chest trauma--a case report

D W LeeG C Barlow


Cardiac injuries following nonpenetrating chest trauma have been reported. These include cardiac arrhythmias, septal damage, valve damage, coronary fistula, coronary artery damage, ventricular aneurysm, cardiac rupture, and myocardial infarction. Myocardial infarction as a complication of chest trauma has been reported in very few cases. In this report the authors describe a patient who developed anterior wall myocardial infarction secondary to a blunt chest trauma.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Cardiac Aneurysm

Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.


Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
