Abstract

We report a survivor of blunt trauma with rupture of the left ventricle and the interventricular septum. A review of the literature revealed no previous report of a survivor of this combination of nonpenetrating injuries, and only four previous survivors of left ventricular rupture due to blunt trauma.
