Success Story

A Middle aged gentleman presented to the cardiology outpatient with sudden onset breathlessness. Two days earlier he had severe angina which was treated medically in a peripheral centre. Upon evaluation he was found to have Inferior wall myocardial infarction with ventricular septal rupture and heart failure. With borderline renal function . He was stabilized over 24 hours and coronary angiogram was done with Intra Aortic Balloon pump support (IABP) and shifted to operating room for corrective surgery as an emergent salvage procedure.

Surgery was done under standard cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermic arrest.

The ventricular septum had a 2 cm defect over the midzone with necrotic edges which was trimmed and patch closure done using treated bovine pericardium adapting the exclusion technique wherein a new surface is created over the necrotic septum.

He had a smooth postoperative course and was shifted to wards on day 4 . His pre discharge echo revealed no residual shunt and moderate LV dysfunction.

Ventricular septal rupture occurs in 1-2% following MI and has a poor outcome if left untreated. 25% die within 24 hrs and 80% by 4 weeks. Post surgery recurrence of VSR is 25%, Heart failure 5%.

Our patient walked home on day 8 following surgery with class II symptoms . We the team members of Cardiac sciences wing at Royalcare are happy to share this information with our colleagues.
