Abstract: A myocardial infarction may be caused by a blunt chest trauma. The myocardium may be directly contused or a coronary artery may be occluded. The present paper describes a patient in whom no obstructive lesions of the coronary arteries were found after a posttraumatic infarction and a second patient with a posttraumatic occlusion of the left anterior descendents. The first patient had an abnormal connection between the right coronary artery and the circumflex artery, which is also thought to be posttraumatic.
