Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction. The incidence of VSR is increasingly rare in the percutaneous coronary intervention era but mortality rate remains high. The key to management of this critical condition is an aggressive approach to hemodynamic stabilization and surgical closure of the rupture. In some patients, transcatheter closure may be considered as an alternative way of treatment. There were several case series demonstrated that percutaneous closure as a bridge to surgery improves outcome of patient who has VSR with hemodynamic ally unstable.Wepresent a case who received transcatheter closure of double ventricular rupture with pseudoaneursym after initial surgical repairment of post infarction ventricular septal rupture.
