Patients presenting with traumatic cardiac rupture are unlikely to survive lengthy transfers from the trauma scene to a hospital. However, in patients with a previous sternotomy, adhesions may divert cardiac hemorrhage, allowing hemodynamic management to be successful. We present an 83-year-old male with a history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) who sustained a right ventricular rupture. He underwent an immediate redo sternotomy and was discharged 10 days postoperatively with no complications.
