Postinfarction ventricular septal defect is a rare mechanical complication of myocardial infarction, with difficult management, debated closure timing and high mortality rates. Standard repair techniques – infarcectomy and infarct exclusion through a left ventriculotomy – are surgically challenging and have high risk of operative mortality and frequently suboptimal results. We…
