Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Ruptured Myocardium is seen in severe infarctions, any infarction does cause severe pain .If the process of infarction was fast as it usually happens in severe infarction , the pain felt could be severe but of short duration.

Such a severe infarction if happens the chances of death are more.
