Abstract

Chest trauma can lead to various cardiac complications ranging from simple arrhythmias to myocardial rupture. A variety of injuries to the coronary arteries, including laceration, thrombosis, intimal dissection, arteriovenous fistula and pseudoaneurysm formation following blunt trauma have been rarely reported. We report a very unusual case of distal embolization of left ventricular thrombus due to blunt chest trauma-induced coronary artery occlusion.
