A man in his 50s was referred to our hospital after being treated for acute anterior wall myocardial infarction (MI) with intravenous thrombolysis. The patient had worsening dyspnoea. Examination revealed elevated jugular venous pressure, bilateral crackles and a prominent pansystolic murmur. Coronary angiogram revealed significant stenosis of the distal left main and ostioproximal left anterior descending artery.
A left ventriculogram was performed during cardiac catheterisation (figure 1, video 1).
