Abstract

Acute papillary muscle rupture and ventricular septal rupture following myocardial infarction are associated with high mortality. We describe the use of cardiopulmonary support to resuscitate two patients, each with one of the above conditions. Early recognition and rapid deployment of CPS were critical to successful outcome.
