Emergent surgical repair of left ventricular rupture after blunt chest trauma



Emergent surgical repair of left ventricular rupture after blunt chest trauma



Annals of Thoracic Surgery 98(2): E35-E36



A 63-year-old man presented with sudden cardiac shock due to cardiac rupture after a blunt chest trauma. We emergently repaired 2 rupture sites with the sandwich technique. This technique maintained the ventricular geometry, and minimized impairment of cardiac function.
