Traumatic Gerbode ventricular septal defect and third-degree heart block

  • Michael J. Campbell (a1), Andrew J. Lodge (a2) and Stephen G. Miller (a1)

Abstract

We present an interesting and rare case of traumatic Gerbode ventricular septal defect and complete heart block. The multimodality images illustrate the diagnosis well. This case is an excellent demonstration of the diagnostic utility of multimodality imaging.
