"Acute myocardial infarction secondary to blunt injury is rare. Even a mild trauma, such as a direct blow to the anterior chest, can cause myocardial infarction. Our article reported that a 28-year-old man who was in a non-penetrating trauma leading to damage of the left anterior descending coronary arteries causing acute myocardial infarction.

We believe focal spasm or transient coronary thrombosis was the cause of myocardial infarction in this patient."
