Postinfarction ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a serious complication following an acute myocardial infarction. We performed repair of a postinfarction posterior VSR; however, the patient developed mitral regurgitation (MR) 2 months later. Geometrical changes caused by ventricular remodeling and recurrent shuntare thought to be the cause of delayed MR.
