Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a life threatening complication of myocardial infarction (MI). The incidence of post-MIVSR varied from 1% to 3% in the pre-thrombolytic era. There is almost a 10-fold decrease in the reported incidences (0.2-0.3%) of MIVSR today. The mortality in such an event is as high as 50-90%. Prognosis of post-MIVSR depends on prompt echo diagnosis and proactive surgical therapy. The peri-operative challenges during management of such a case can be enormous.
