Abstract

Post-cardiac arrest care is a particular interesting field and often depends on individual patient characteristics. Here we present the case of a patient with ST-elevation myocardial infarction, who developed severe pulmonary embolism originating from the proximity of a prominent Eustachian valve and the introduced pacemaker probe after targeted temperature management.
