Newborn With Severely Depressed Left Ventricular Function: Acute Myocardial Infarction in a Newborn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We describe a rare case of spontaneous coronary artery thrombosis in a newborn leading to rapid severe ventricular dysfunction. Early diagnosis is critical and management strategies are varied including hemodynamic support with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, systemic/local thrombolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen activator, or surgical thrombectomy. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
