PMID:  3225064     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two patients are reported in whom ventricular septal rupture complicated the recovery from surgery for left ventricular free wall rupture. One patient was successfully reoperated upon, but the second died before the diagnosis was obtained. The importance of being aware of the association and of excluding a left ventricular to right ventricular shunt at the time of surgery, or subsequently during clinical deterioration, is discussed.
