Abstract

Left ventricular rupture is the most frequent cause of death following myocardial infarction after ventricular arrhytmias and cardiogenic shock. Under these circumstances, only a prompt diagnosis and urgent surgical treatment can be lifesaving. A review of the literature is made and a simple surgical technique with GRF glue application is presented.
