Intramyocardial dissecting hematoma (IDH) is a rare condition mostly seen following acute myocardial infarction, chest trauma, and cardiac surgery. It is described as an incomplete rupture caused by hemorrhagic dissection within the myocardium, rather than extending to the epicardial layer. Management strategies for IDH are controversial due to limited reports. We present a case of a 61-year-old man diagnosed with IDH, left main, and three-vessel disease, subsequently treated surgically.
