Points and Pearls Excerpt

  • Cardiac wall rupture is the most devastating form of blunt cardiac injury (BCI). The sealing of a ruptured wall may lead to a pseudoaneurysm and delayed tamponade.
  • Trauma to the coronary arteries may lead to a myocardial infarction. The left anterior descending artery is most commonly affected.
  • The most common arrhythmia associated with BCI is sinus tachycardia.
  • The most common conduction block associated with BCI is right bundle branch block.
