A 60-year-old male patient arrived at emergency department due to cardiac arrest. As the patient had acute myocardial infarction and hemopericardium, we performed extracorporeal life support by percutaneous femoral cannulation. His cardiac function was recovered and stabilized hemodynamically. Soon after identifying post-infarction left ventricle rupture, we found that the venous cannula was protruded out right ventricle after pericardiotomy. We repaired the both ventricles and left anterior descending artery was bypassed. The patient was discharged without complication.
