Abstract

Myocardial infarction during pregnancy is rare. This report presents a 28-year old parturient with no risk factors for coronary heart disease, in whom an acute anterior myocardial infarction occurred in the 34th gestational week. A caesarian section was performed at term due to an obstetrical cause and under hemodynamic monitoring without complications. Coronary angiography performed 4 months after delivery revealed the presence of normal coronary arteries and mild regional left ventricular dysfunction.
