Abstract

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare life-threatening complication of myocardial infarction. Transcatheter or surgical closure could be both used for VSR management but using the transcatheter method is associated with less mortality rate. Regardless of the controversial issues, the best timing for the procedure in post-myocardial infarction, the patient’s clinical condition and underlying diseases might complicate the management. We present a patient with positive COVID -19 test who developed VSR, following myocardial infarction. Successful transcatheter closure was carried out and the health condition improved, as well.
