A 51-year-old auto truck driver was transferred to our hospital after crashing. He had a severe pain on the left anterior chest wall with high central venous pressure of 30 cm H(2)O. Surveillance of the chest revealed cardiac tamponade and the right seventh rib fracture with left pleural effusion. Pericardiotomy through median sternotomy led to extrusive bloody pericardial effusion. Non-perforating pericardial laceration at the site of the adjoining muscular structure of the diaphragm was repaired with direct suture closure. His postoperative course was uneventful.
