Abstract

Traumatic coronary artery dissection is a very rare cause of myocardial infarction. Occurrence of this condition late in the posttraumatic period is extremely uncommon. We present a case of a young patient with acute myocardial infarction 4 weeks after blunt chest trauma. Coronary angiography showed left anterior descending artery dissection as well as thrombus formation, and multiple small infarctions were shown by cardiovascular magnetic resonance.
