A ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare complication of blunt chest trauma. We describe the case of a 25-year-old man who developed a VSR as a result of a high-speed road accident. The rupture was closed by left ventricular remodeling and replacement of the diseased myocardium with a Dacron patch. The patch sutures were reinforced with glue. Redo surgery was necessary at nine months due to patch detachment and embolization of the glue in the right lower lobe. The patient is asymptomatic, at 13-month follow-up.
