We ­treated a 60-­year-old ­woman for post­in­farc­tion ven­tric­ular ­septal ­defect (VSD) and ­closed it by the infarc­tion exclu­sion ­method. Post­op­er­a­tively she was com­pli­cated by Can­dida ­sternal med­i­as­tin­itis and ­residual ­shunt of VSD. ­After her ­sternal infec­tion ­came ­under con­trol, we ­repaired the ­leaking VSD via ­left thor­a­cotomy ­under hypo­thermic cir­cu­la­tory ­arrest. She recov­ered ­well and ­repair of the le­aking VSD ­under cir­cu­la­tory ­arrest via ­left thor­a­cotomy ­seemed to be a ­safe and prom­ising alter­na­tive for VSD ­repair.
