A 59-year-old man, who had been treated using the infarction exclusion technique for inferior post-infarction ventricular septal rupture (VSR) 4 months previously, was readmitted because of deterioration of mitral valve regurgitation, residual shunt, and progression of pulmonary hypertension. We performed mitral valve replacement via the transseptal approach, patch closure of the defect via the transtricuspid approach, and tricuspid valve annuloplasty. The post-operative course was uneventful. The transtricuspid approach is useful in redo surgery for post-infarction VSR.
