Delayed ventricular septal rupture following blunt chest trauma



Delayed ventricular septal rupture following blunt chest trauma



Korean Circulation Journal 41(10): 625-628



Cardiac injury is a common but occasionally serious complication of blunt chest trauma. A ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare complication and is variable in its presentation, temporal course and severity. Here, we report a rare case of 75-year-old man who developed delayed VSR following blunt chest trauma.
