BACKGROUND: Post-infarction ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but lethal mechanical complication of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Survival to 1 month without intervention is 6%. Given high surgical mortality, transcatheter closure has emerged as a potential strategy in selected cases. Indian data on percutaneous device closure of post AMI-VSR is scarce hence we report our single-centre experience with ASD occluder device (Amplatzer and lifetech) for closure of post-AMI VSR...

We evaluated a 49-year-old man with severe tricuspid valve regurgitation and coronary artery disease who had undergone congenital ventricular septal defect repair four decades previously. We found an enlarged, prolapsed commissure between the anterior and septal leaflets and a ruptured septal leaflet chorda. Two mattress sutures closed the commissure, with the leaflets' height matched by inverting the prolapsed site ventricularly. After implanting the annuloplasty band, we undertook chordal replacement using expanded polytetrafluoroethylene sutures...

To determine the correlation exists between ventricular septal defect (VSD) and ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA). Methods: Between September 2003 and April 2014, 80 RSVA patients underwent surgical repair. These patients were retrospectively divided into two groups: the VSD group (38 cases) and the non-VSD group (42 cases).  Results: Rupture points of SVA originated more frequently in the right coronary sinus (RCS) of patients in the VSD group than those in the non-VSD group (p=0.002). In the VSD group, more than 92...

Interventricular membranous septal (IVMS) aneurysm is a rare condition with no accurate incidence. It is known to be associated with 0.3 % of congenital heart disease and 19 % of ventricular septal defects. IVMS aneurysm is often asymptomatic but can be complicated with right ventricular obstruction, rupture, thromboembolism, and conduction defects. Clinicians and radiologist should be aware about this rare clinical entity and evaluation of any possible underlying cardiac abnormalities should be performed. Conservative management with close follow up is the mainstay of management in the absence of complication...

We report a 1-year-old boy with a delayed diagnosis of traumatic ventricular septal defect (VSD) related to chest compression. His cardiac function was stable after adequate medical treatment. Spontaneous closure of traumatic VSD occurred to this patient at the age of 4 years. This is a rare case of traumatic VSD associated with accidental chest compression, which is similar to rupture of the ventricular septum after blunt chest trauma. It should be kept in mind that traumatic VSD and concomitant thoracic injuries can develop during chest compression...

A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare complication of blunt chest trauma. This report presents the case of a 44-year-old man who developed a VSD as a result of high-energy closed chest trauma. We describe the initial surgical and medical management of the cardiac rupture. After failed repair surgery, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was used as a bridge to heart transplantation. We discuss the successful use of ECMO to improve the prognosis results in this rare and complex entity.

The management of pulmonary atresia with a ventricular septal defect (PA/VSD) depends on the anatomy of the pulmonary artery or on the surgical strategy used at individual institutions. In our institution, we adopted a right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery (RV-PA) shunt in 2011 as a palliative procedure for PA/VSD to overcome the disadvantages of a Blalock-Taussig shunt. We evaluated the results of the RV-PA shunt as initial palliative surgery for PA/VSD. Thirteen patients with ductus-dependent PA/VSD from August 2011 to August 2015 were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a severe complication of acute myocardial infarction, and the conventional technique for repair is associated with high operative mortality. A novel intraventricular stent graft (IVSG) device was tested as a less invasive treatment for VSR; it does not require cardiopulmonary bypass, cardiac arrest, or left ventricular incision. Its effectiveness was assessed using animal experiments. METHODS: Six pigs were placed on cardiopulmonary bypass...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular septal defect is a lethal complication after an acute myocardial infarction which have become infrequent with the advent of reperfusion strategies however; they remain a major contributor to mortality. METHODS: We identified patients using the ICD-9CM procedure codes from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample between the years 2001 and 2013. A multivariate hierarchical logistic regression model was used to identify significant predictors of in-hospital mortality...

A 59-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with acute pulmonary oedema and cardiogenic shock 35 days after anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction. She developed a new loud pan systolic murmur. Echocardiography revealed a ventricular septal rupture with a significant left to right shunt. She was immediately transferred to the local cardiothoracic unit where she underwent a successful ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair. Ventricular septal rupture often presents within the first 24 hours of acute myocardial infarction and is rare thereafter...

Postinfarction ventricular septal rupture is a life-threatening complication of acute myocardial infarction. Although some novel techniques of ventricular septal rupture closure have been introduced, they involve ventriculotomy, a procedure that can cause a degree of impairment of the incised ventricle. We describe a case in which we closed a ventricular septal rupture through the tricuspid valve, without ventriculotomy.

Most patients diagnosed with takotsubo cardiomyopathies are expected to almost completely recover, and their prognosis is excellent. However, complications can occur in the acute phase. We present a case of a woman with takotsubo cardiomyopathy with right ventricular involvement who developed a rupture of the right ventricular free wall following ventricular septal rupture, as a consequence of an acute increase in right ventricular afterload by left-to-right shunt. Our case report illustrates that takotsubo cardiomyopathy can be life threatening in the acute phase...
