Abstract

Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a life-threatening complication following acute transmural myocardial infarction. Posteriorly located ruptures are one of the main predictors of poor prognoses because of the surgical difficulties associated with this location. A 72-year-old man with a posterior VSR underwent surgical repair via the right atrial approach. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful, and echocardiography showed no residual shunt flow. He was discharged on postoperative day 37. By temporally detaching the tricuspid valve leaflet, this approach provides a better view and handling space within the posterior ventricular septum than the trans-ventricular approach. Additionally, avoiding a ventricular incision can better preserve postoperative ventricular function.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 September 2016.
All research outputs
#20,338,537
of 22,884,315 outputs
Outputs from Surgical Case Reports
#239
of 488 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#293,961
of 336,882 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgical Case Reports
#7
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,884,315 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 488 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.9. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 336,882 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
