Acquired muscular ventricular septal defects (MVSD) after myocardial infarction (MI) can lead to right heart failure and cardiogenic shock with high mortality. Early surgical therapy is often difficult to perform but can reduce the mortality. The closure of congenital septal defects is performed with high safety. Therefore, the interventional closure of an acquired post-MI VSD might be feasible and of potential benefit. To date, experiences with closure of post-MI MVSDs are minimal. We report on two patients with post-MI VSD.
