Abstract

A 52-year-old man acquired a ventricular septal defect following non-penetrating chest trauma. Four days after the traumatic accident, he showed signs of congestive heart failure. Imaging techniques using echocardiography and left ventriculography were helpful in diagnosing the condition. Surgical repair by patch closure of the ventricular septal defect was accomplished 7 days after the traumatic accident. (Jpn Circ J 1997; 61: 951 - 953)
