Blunt chest trauma can lead to cardiac complications ranging from simple arrythmias to myocardial rupture. Injury to coronary arteries with subsequent myocardial infarction after blunt chest trauma is rare, but carries a significant risk of morbidity and mortality. Therefore, rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment are reguired. Most coronary artery occlusions after trauma are caused by disruption of pre-existing atherosclerotic palque, so acoronary artery occlusion is unusual complication in a young man. We report the case of a previously healthy young man who developed acute myocardial infarction following blunt chest trauma.
Key Words: Blunt chest trauma; Myocardial infarction
