A 57 year old man presented with postinfarction ventricular septal infarct (VSD) a week after myocardial infarction and thrombolytic therapy. Coronary angiography confirmed double vessel disease. He underwent surgical repair of the VSD and coronary artery bypass grafting. Two days postoperatively, he deteriorated due to recurrence of VSD. Reoperation was carried out with satisfactory results. The surgical management is described with a review of the relevant literature.
