Abstract

We successfully undertook surgical treatment of intrapericardial laceration of the inferior vena cava caused by external cardiac massage in a patient with acute coronary syndrome. Injury to the inferior vena cava without blunt trauma is very rare, and diagnostic imaging does not show it clearly, making it difficult to diagnose. Rapid and accurate judgment and management are necessary, because the mortality due to this injury is very high.
