Ventricular septal rupture with right ventricular wall dissection after inferior ventricular infarction: A case report and literature review.

J Clin Ultrasound 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Cardiovascular Ultrasound, The First Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning, China.

Right ventricular (RV) wall dissection following ventricular septal rupture related to inferior myocardial infarction (MI) is an extremely rare complication with a high mortality rate. We report the case of a 61-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital because of syncope and intermittent chest pain with a precordial murmur. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a rupture at the basal infero-posterior septum and RV free-wall dissection forming an echolucent cavity that extended beyond the septum and subsequently re-entered into RV chamber.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, National Hospital Organization Tokyo Medical Center, Tokyo, Japan.

A 67-year-old man presented with late left ventricular free wall rupture 1 month after an extended sandwich technique through a right ventricular incision for ventricular septal rupture following an inferoposterior acute myocardial infarction. We found that residual infarcted myocardium had led to left ventricular aneurysm formation. A pericardial patch on the left ventricular side at the initial operation should have been secured further from the septal defect using a larger needle. Read More

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Papworth Hospital, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB23 3RE, UK.

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) can result in ischemic, mechanical, arrhythmic, embolic, or inflammatory complications. The development of mechanical complications following AMI is associated with a significantly reduced short-term and long-term survival. Since the introduction of primary percutaneous coronary intervention as the principal reperfusion strategy following acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction, the incidence of mechanical complications, including rupture of the left ventricular free wall, papillary muscle, and ventricular septum, has reduced significantly to less than 1%.

Multimodality cardiac imaging of a ventricular septal rupture post myocardial infarction: a case report.

BMC Res Notes 2012 Oct 25;5:583. Epub 2012 Oct 25.

Department of Radiology, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Background: Ventricular septal rupture (VSR), a mechanical complication following an acute myocardial infarction (MI), is thought to result from coagulation necrosis due to lack of collateral reperfusion. Although the gold standard test to confirm left-to-right shunting between ventricular cavities remains invasive ventriculography, two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) with color flow Doppler and cardiac MRI (CMR) are reliable tests for the non-invasive diagnosis of VSR.

Case Presentation: A 62-year-old Caucasian female presented with a late case of a VSR post inferior MI diagnosed by multimodality cardiac imaging including TTE, CMR and ventriculography. Read More

Ventricular septal rupture imaged with real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography: diagnosis at a glance.

J Cardiovasc Med (Hagerstown) 2014 Jan;15(1):82-4

UO Cardiologia, Maria Cecilia Hospital - GVM Care & Research, Via Corriera 1, Cotignola, Italy.

Ventricular septal rupture is a rare complication of acute myocardial infarction and its diagnosis can be really challenging especially in the case of complex lesions. Echocardiography is the technique of choice for the detection of mechanical complications following myocardial infarction. The introduction of three-dimensional echocardiography offers new imaging possibilities with precise localization and easiest definition of the defect anatomy. Read More

Management of recurrent leaks following postinfarction ventricular septal defect repairs.

J Card Surg 2012 Sep 13;27(5):576-80. Epub 2012 Aug 13.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Louisville of School of Medicine, Louisville, Kentucky 40202, USA.

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) complicates acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in less than 0.2% of cases and is usually surgically managed by endocardial patch repair with infarct exclusion. Although successful in 80% of cases, failure of patch repair (often because of patch dehiscence) results in attempts at percutaneous closure as reoperative mortality can be as high as 40%. Read More

Percutaneous therapeutic approaches to closure of cardiac pseudoaneurysms.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2012 Oct 17;80(4):687-99. Epub 2012 Apr 17.

Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota 55905, USA.

Cardiac and aortic pseudoaneurysms are rare complications following myocardial infarction or cardiac surgery. They are characterized by a contained cardiac or aortic rupture within surrounding tissue and have a high mortality rate if left untreated. Percutaneous treatment of cardiac pseudoaneurysms might be a feasible treatment option in patients who are at high risk of reoperative surgery. Read More

Hybrid closure of postinfarction ventricular septal rupture enlargement after transcathether closure with Amplatzer occluder.

Eur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care 2012 Apr;1(1):57-9

Hospital de Santa Maria, Lisbon, Portugal.

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is nowadays a rare complication of myocardial infarction (MI), but with a mortality rate still very high. Urgent surgical correction is recommended, although in specific cases percutaneous closure of a post-infarct VSR is a therapeutic option or a bridge to surgical correction. We report a case of an 80-year-old woman, with a subacute anterior MI with an antero-septal VSR. Read More

Post myocardial infarction cardiogenic shock: a review of current therapies.

J Intensive Care Med 2013 May-Jun;28(3):151-65. Epub 2011 Jul 11.

University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA.

Cardiogenic shock is often a devastating consequence of acute myocardial infarction (MI) and portends to significant mortality and morbidity. Despite improvements in expediting the time to treatment and enhancements in available medical therapy and reperfusion techniques, cardiogenic shock remains the most common cause of mortality following MI. Post-MI cardiogenic shock most commonly occurs as a consequence of severe left ventricular dysfunction. Read More

[Mechanical complications of myocardial infarction].

Rev Med Suisse 2011 Jun;7(297):1189-92

Service de cardiologie, Département de médecine interne, HUG, 121 I Genève 14.

Despite a marked reduction in mortality after myocardial infarction during the last decades thanks to heart monitoring and early reperfusion, there remains a significant rate of in-hospital mortality. This is a consequence of refractory ventricular dysfunction in most cases, or mechanical complications of myocardial infarction in the remaining cases. Mechanical complications include septal rupture with ventricular septal defect, tamponnade following rupture of the left ventricular free wall, and acute mitral regurgitation due to papillary muscle infarction and rupture.

Traumatic ventricular septal defect in a 4-year-old boy after blunt chest injury.

Korean J Pediatr 2011 Feb 28;54(2):86-9. Epub 2011 Feb 28.

Division of Pediatric Cardiology, Cardiovascular Center, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Traumatic ventricular septal defect (VSD) resulting from blunt chest injury is a very rare event. The mechanisms of traumatic VSD have been of little concern to dateuntil now, but two dominant theories have been described. In one, the rupture occurs due to acute compression of the heart; in the other, it is due to myocardial infarction of the septum. Read More
