Abstract

A 73-year-old man with an acute myocardial infarction experienced severe cardiogenic shock due to an inferior ventricular septal rupture with a massive left-to-right shunt. Emergency surgery was considered a too high mortality risk. The patient was implanted with an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation system as a bridge to surgery. On the seventh day after admission, the ventricular septal defect was successfully repaired. Our case study demonstrates that extracorporeal membrane oxygenation could be an option in cases of ventricular septal rupture as a bridge for stabilizing patients.
