We report the case of a 27-year-old woman with a rare presentation of right ventricular failure secondary to isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction, 3 weeks after an uncommon surgical procedure, the modified Cabrol operation. Her medical history also included a Ross procedure at the age of 12 years. On the basis of her subacute presentation and a consultation with cardiac surgeons, we decided on medical management. Follow-up echocardiography at 6 months revealed that the right ventricular systolic function remained severely impaired, but the patient was asymptomatic with excellent functional capacity.We review the surgical techniques of aortic graft replacement and their respective complications. We also discuss the impact of conservative and reperfusion strategies on prognosis and long-term outcomes in the setting of right ventricular infarction.
