Although uncommon, significant postoperative residual leaks may occur after repair of any type of ventricular septal defect (VSD). Post-traumatic VSDs are even rarer, but can be occasionally seen after penetrating or blunt chest trauma. When these defects are associated with significant left-to-right shunting (Qp/Qs > 1.5) with persistent left ventricular volume overload, intervention is generally recommended. Surgical treatment requires cardiopulmonary bypass with its attendant morbidity… CONTINUE READING
