Abstract

An unusual case of acute pulmonary edema without associated arrhythmias in a 33-year-old woman is reported. The patient suffered recurrent pulmonary edema refractory to medication and eventual cardiac arrest. Successful emergency myectomy following cardiac arrest allowed the patient to resume an active lifestyle despite significant diastolic abnormality. During an 18-month follow-up the patient suffered one brief episode of pulmonary edema.
