    Aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are extremely rare. Ruptured aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva are frequently associated with other congenital defects, particularly with ventricular septal defect, aortic valve regurgitation, and bicuspid aortic valve. We describe the case of a 26-year-old...

    A patient with traumatic ventricular septal defect following nonpenetrating trauma is reported and the surgical literature reviewed.

    We report 4 consecutive cases in which the double-patch technique was used to repair an inferior postinfarction ventricular septal rupture.

    Complications of acute myocardial infarction have decreased in number and severity due to the application of early thrombolytic coronary revascularization techniques. Nonetheless, the mortality rate associated with these complications remains high. Ventricular septal rupture is one of the...
