There are three major mechanical complications of acute myocardial infarction: rupture of the left ventricular free wall, rupture of the interventricular septum, and development of mitral regurgitation. Each of these complications is associated with extremely high mortality. Reviewing the scientific literature, we found descriptions of sporadic cases of both of those complications combined. We report an unusual case of simultaneous rupture of free wall and interventricular septum.
