Post-infarction ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare but potentially lethal complication of acute myocardial infarction. Medical management is usually futile, so definitive surgery remains the treatment of choice but the risk surgery is very high and the optimal timing for surgery is still under debate. A 55-year-old man with no previous medical history attended the emergency-room for 12 h evolution of oppressive chest pain and strong anginal pain 7 days ago. On physical examination, blood pressure was 96/70 mmHg, pansystolic murmur over left sternal border without pulmonary crackles...

Objective: The study aimed to identify the factors affecting the prognosis of post myocardial infarction (MI) ventricular septal rupture (VSR) and to develop a protocol for its management. Methods: This was a single center, retrospective-prospective study (2009-2014), involving 55 patients with post MI VSR. The strengths of association between risk factors and prognosis were assessed using multivariate logistic regression analysis. The UNM Post MI VSR management and prognosis scoring systems (UPMS & UPPS) were developed...

Post-myocardial infarction ventricular septal defect corresponds to the rupture of the ventricular septum between the healthy and infarcted parts. It is a rare complication still associated with a high mortality rate. Its diagnostic should be evoked in case of pathologic cardiac auscultation and confirmed by emergent transthoracic echocardiography. Hemodynamic stabilisation, mainly with the insertion of an intra-aortic balloon pump is the first step in the management. The subsequent modality of closure, either surgical or transcatheter, as well as the ideal timing should be discussed in the Heart team...

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...

BACKGROUND: Post-infarction cardiac rupture (CR) such as ventricular septal rupture (VSR), free wall rupture (FWR), atrial septal rupture (ASR) or papillary muscle rupture (PMR) is a rare but dreaded complication in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) associated with a very poor prognosis with reported mortality rates between 60 and 100%. Therefore suitable risk stratification for secondary prevention seems crucial, but data on long-term survival und risk prediction in this especially vulnerable patient collective remains scarce...

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a complication of myocardial infarction. Surgery is the only treatment; however, mortality is high, especially if it is performed within 7 days from presentation. The improved outcome with delayed intervention could be related to evolution of the infarct, which allows a more effective surgical repair. However, it is also a representation of survival bias, as an early surgery is usually performed on individuals with hemodynamic instability. We present a case of VSR complicated by cardiogenic shock...

Post-myocardial infarction ventricular septal rupture (PIVSR) is a complication of acute myocardial infarction with high mortality. We report a new surgical strategy to treat PIVSR. Instead of traditional open surgery, the septal defect was repaired with periventricular closure off pump.

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) post acute myocardial infarction is associated with a high mortality rate if not treated. Early surgical repair is recommended regardless of haemodynamic status. We review the role of transcatheter device closure for VSR, which has emerged as an alternative to surgery. The procedure itself has a high technical success rate with a relatively low complication rate; however, it is associated with high in-hospital mortality rates when performed in the early phase. Results post transcatheter closure are best in the subacute phase post MI (in part reflective of a selection bias), or post surgical repair with a patch leak...

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but devastating complication after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). While the incidence has decreased, the mortality rate from VSR has remained extremely high. The use of mechanical circulatory support with intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) and extracorporal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may be useful in providing hemodynamic stability and time for myocardial scarring. However, the optimal timing for surgical repair remains an enigma. Retrospective analysis of 14 consecutive patients diagnosed with VSR after AMI at Montefiore Medical Center between January 2009 and June 2015...

This is a CT imaging study of a 63-year-old female who presented to our center with ST segment elevation MI and was found to have life threatening post-MI ventricular septal defect with associated pseudoaneurysm, which was detected on cardiac CTA. The patient refused surgical management and had a successful percutaneous VSD repair.

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a disastrous mechanical complication of myocardial infarction. Although several surgical interventions have been developed, mortality due to surgical management remains high, especially in the case of posterior VSR. We report a successful case of repair of posterior VSR using an alternative transatrial approach to avoid the complications related to ventricular incision.

An 87-year-old woman with continuous chest discomfort was referred to our hospital. ST-segment elevation in lead V1-4 was detected on electrocardiography and ventricular septal rupture (VSR) was observed on echocardiography. Post-acute myocardial infarction (AMI) VSR was suspected and she underwent emergency cardiac catheterization. However, coronary angiography showed normal coronary artery. On the fourth day after admission, the patient died. We suspect that VSR was developed by stress induced cardiomyopathy, not by AMI...

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is an uncommon but serious complication of acute myocardial infarction (MI), associated with a high mortality rate. Although early surgical treatment improves the prognosis, hospital mortality after emergency surgery remains high. Transcatheter closure of postmyocardial infarction ventricular septal defect (PIVSD) has emerged as a potential strategy in selected cases. Current interventional reports are mainly restricted to PIVSD closure in the chronic and subacute setting, which only give a short term result...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is an uncommon but well-recognized mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The outcome of VSR remains poor even in the era of reperfusion therapy. We reviewed our experience with surgical repair of post-infarction VSR and analyzed outcomes in an attempt to identify prognostic factors. METHODS: From October 1995 to December 2013, data from 47 consecutive patients (mean age, 68 ± 9.5 years) with post-infarction VSR who underwent surgical repair at our institute were retrospectively reviewed...
