A case of traumatic ventricular septal defect diagnosed by Doppler echocardiography is described. The characteristic pulsed Doppler findings of a Left-to- right shunt were recorded and the two-dimensional echocardiographic images of septal interruption were shown. Combined Doppler and two-dimensional echocardiography enhances the ability to detect the presence of a ventricular septal defect. Doppler echocardiography appears to be a useful noninvasive imaging modality in the evaluation of patients with cardiac trauma.

    Ventricular septal defect (VSD) can be associated with various complications such as aortic regurgitation (AR). AR in VSD come from a deficiency or hypoplasia of the conal septum which leads to abnormal apposition in diastole and prolapse of the poorly supported noncoronary or right coronary...
