Description
A successful transatrial repair in redo surgery of postinfarction posterior ventricular septal rupture (VSR) was performed after an infarct exclusion technique through left ventriculotomy incision of the infarcted area. For the infarct lesion, this approach provides excellent results with sufficient closure of the VSR and prevention of the ventricular remodeling for five years. A right atrial approach for postinfarction posterior VSR is very useful for avoiding any further ventriculotomy in an already impaired ventricle, securing a stable suture, and preserving the left ventricular geometry and function.
