Abstract

Myocardial infarction (MI) secondary to acute coronary occlusion related to trauma is rare. A previously healthy man developed acute MI shortly after a motor vehicle accident. This case illustrates the feasibility of primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute MI due to complete coronary artery occlusion related to trauma, including the use of manual thrombectomy, stents, and dual antiplatelet therapy. This approach requires the intervention of a multidisciplinary team in a Level 1 trauma center that can rapidly evaluate the patient and rule out other life-threatening injuries that could preclude antiplatelet therapy.
