Ventricular septal perforation(VSP) is major complication of post-myocardiac infarction which is difficult to treat. The aim of the study was to consider the strategy of VSP through 45 patients in our Hospital.


A consecutive series of 45 patients who underwent repair of VSP between 1998 and 2017 was studied. Data were collected on clinical, angiographic, and echocardiographic findings; operative procedures; early morbidity; and survivial time. Approaches to the VSP were left ventriculotomy in 88%(40 patients), right atrium in 6%(3 patients), and right ventriculotomy in 2%(1 patient). Repairs VSP were David-Komeda in 55%(25 patients), Dagget in 20%(9 patients), double patch in 15%(7 patients), modified David-Komeda in 6%(3 patients), and direct closure in 2%(1 patient).


Thirty-day and the hospital mortality was 37%(17 patients) and 44%(20 patients). About approach, mortality was 47% by left ventriculotomy, 25% by right atrium, and 0% by right ventriculotomy. In surgical procedure, mortality was 56% by David-Komeda, 44% by Daggett, 28% by double patch, and 0% by modified David-Komeda and direct closure. Intra-aortic balloon pump support, age CPB time were significantly associated with a lower risk of hospital mortality(p=0.09, p=0.001, and p=0.02, respectively). 1 month and1 year cumulative survival was 61% and 45%. Follow-up was a mean of 2.6±3.9 years.


There is no significant difference in major adverse, but there is a possibility that the repair of VSP by double patch and by right ventriculotomy is safe.
