Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) with dissection of the right ventricular free wall is an extremely rare complication after inferior myocardial infarction. Mortality is 100% without surgical treatment. The optimal surgical strategy remains unclear because of the limited number of cases, but repair of VSR alone might be equally effective as repair of VSR and right ventricular free wall reconstruction. Transesophageal echocardiography is an important adjunct to transthoracic echocardiography to establish the diagnosis.
