Simultaneous rupture of the mitral and tricuspid valves with left ventricular rupture caused by blunt trauma



Simultaneous rupture of the mitral and tricuspid valves with left ventricular rupture caused by blunt trauma



Annals of Thoracic Surgery 86(4): 1371-1373



To date, we believe that only 8 patients with simultaneous rupture of the mitral and tricuspid valves caused by blunt chest trauma have been reported. The correct diagnosis of this condition during the initial assessment is difficult and often delayed. Surgical experience with this condition has been quite limited. We present a unique case of atrioventricular valve rupture, combined with left ventricular rupture and a brief review of the relevant literature.
