Abstract

A 60-year-old male patient with blunt chest trauma was transferred to our facility because of unstable vital signs and pericardial effusion. These conditions occurred after orthopedic surgery to repair multiple left finger fractures at a local medical center. Trans-thoracic echocardiography showed severe tricuspid regurgitation and he underwent papillary muscle reimplantation and tricuspid annuloplasty open heart surgery for post-traumatic tricuspid regurgitation with anterior papillary muscle rupture. We report early surgical traumatic valve disease correction without complications.
