Abstract: A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare complication of blunt chest trauma. This report presents the case of a 44-year-old man who developed a VSD as a result of high-energy closed chest trauma. We describe the initial surgical and medical management of the cardiac rupture.

Cardiac tamponade after blunt trauma is rare and usu-ally associated with rupture of cardiac chambers on the relatively weaker right side [1]. Aortic injury causing tamponade after blunt trauma is an even rarer cata-strophic injury that leads to death. Blunt trauma can in-flict injury to the aorta through several mechanisms.

High clinical suspicion, even in hemodynamically stable patients, is essential for timely recognition and intervention. There is scant literature on the management of complete aortic transection in pediatric patients.

Cardiac rupture following blunt trauma to the chest is a relatively uncommon diagnosis, however it is associated with a very high mortality rate. Successful management is based on a high index of suspicion, avoidance of unnecessary diagnostic studies and immediate surgical intervention once the diagnosis is made.

Successful emergency department thoracotomy for traumatic

Cardiac rupture due to blunt chest trauma is seen rarely in the ED, as it is often fatal at the scene. Cardiac arrest prior to hospital presentation portends an extremely poor prog-nosis. Although survival rates of EDT in blunt chest trauma are very low, only 1.4%,[3] EDT can serve as the only life-saving procedure available.
