Primary Angioplasty for Acute Isolated Right Ventricular Myocardial Infarction

Right ventricular myocardial infarction accompanies inferior myocardial infarction in 30 to 50 percent of cases. However isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction has rarely been diagnosed, and is seen in fewer than 3 percent of all cases of acute miyocardial infarction. Because right ventricular infarction is associated with increased rates of morbidity and mortality, successful reperfusion has gained importance in treatment. Herein we present two separate cases of isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction successfully treated by primary angioplasty. (Arch Turk Soc Cardiol 2003;31:290-3)
