Incidentally Detected Bifid Cardiac Apex in a Patient With Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Case Presentation and Brief Literature Review

A bifid cardiac apex is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly in humans and is usually associated with other congenital heart diseases. We present an incidentally detected bifid cardiac apex in a patient presenting with inferior ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction, which was subsequently confirmed with selective ventriculography. This anomaly, albeit rare, can be a source of confusion to clinicians—especially when there is acute coronary syndrome. The presence of this anomaly should, therefore, be kept in mind in daily practice.
