MetadataShow full item record
Post-infarction ventricular septal defects (VSD) are rare (1-2%) but often fatal complications of acute myocardial infarction. These post infarction defects require urgent surgical treatment. We report a case unique in being a late presentation of post MI multiple VSDs. The patient survived surgery and a stormy post repair course with an excellent final outcome.
