Abstract

Myocardial infarction can be complicated by Ventricular septal rupture which is a rare fatal grim mechanical complication of MI which is a surgical emergency due to its incredibly high mortality rate. We depict a case of Anterior wall MI which was complicated by Ventricular septal rupture post fibrinolytic therapy.
