Abstract

Background: The development of a ventricular septal defect (VSD) after myocardial infarction (MI) is an uncommon but highly lethal complication. We examined The Society of Thoracic Surgeons database to characterize patients undergoing surgical repair of post-MI VSD and to identify risk factors for poor outcomes. Methods: This was a retrospective review of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons database to identify adults (aged
