Abstract

Isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction accounts for only 3% of all infarctions. It has previously been reported as a complication of percutaneous coronary intervention involving the right coronary artery secondary to occlusion of the right ventricular branch. In the present: report, a patient is described in whom isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction developed due to occlusion of the right ventricular branch of the right coronary artery in the absence of percutaneous intervention.
