[A case report of oozing type cardiac rupture following acute myocardial infarction: hemostasis with fibrin glue and oxycellulose].

A 65-year-old man was admitted due to acute anterior myocardial infarction. After admission, he fell into cardiac shock. Echocardiogram showed cardiac tamponade due to cardiac rupture. He was immediately transferred to the operating room. After opening the pericardium, 300 ml of bloody pericardial fluid containing coagula was excluded. Hematoma-like infarcted lesion was found on the surface of the left ventricular apex. Because there was no bleeding point, fibrin glue and oxycellulose was fixed on this lesion for pressure hemostasis without any suture. The postoperative course was uneventful.
