PMID:  7354499     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Blunt chest trauma may produce a variety of cardiac lesions, which may occur alone or in combination. A case with a ventricular septal defect, left ventricular aneurysm, and coronary arteriovenous fistula with an associated rupture of the thoracic aorta following blunt trauma is presented in order to demonstrate that multiple, life-threatening cardaic lesions may be managed successfully. Surgical repair 32 days postinjury with Teflon patch plus ligation of the fistula were followed by recovery in the patient presented.
