Abstract

Our patient suffered a single stab wound to the heart that resulted in a coronary artery to ventricle fistula, a ventricular septal defect, mitral regurgitation from chordal transection, and a delayed left ventricular aneurysm. We used transesophageal echocardiography to characterize these multiple defects to help guide successful surgical repair. The patient recovered uneventfully.
