A frequent reason of admission to the emergency room is blunt chest trauma following car accidents. Chest injuries may cause a wide range of cardiac lesions, extending from myocardial contusion, to heart or great vessels rupture, to valvular lesions. We present a case of aortic valve rupture after blunt chest trauma.
