A rare complication of acute myocardial infarction: Intra-myocardial dissecting hematoma.Echocardiography 2019; 36(1):182-183E
A rare and unusual form of myocardial rupture that can complicate acute myocardial infarction is intra-myocardial dissecting hematoma (IDH). Reports in the literature describing this entity are limited to case reports or series. The diagnosis prior to the advent of noninvasive imaging was at autopsy. We present a case of IDH occurring after acute anterior wall myocardial infarction that terminated fatally preceded by a hemodynamically unstable incessant ventricular tachycardia.
