Transthoracic Two-Dimensional Apical Four-Chamber Views in a Patient with Ventricular Septal Rupture Complicating an Anterior Acute Myocardial Infarction.
In Panel A, the ventricular septal rupture is apical and simple (arrow). RV denotes right ventricle, and LV left ventricle. The sites of both the right and the left ventricular perforation are at the same level. In Panel B, color Doppler ultrasonography shows turbulent flow (bright blue mosaic) from the left ventricle to the right ventricle through the interventricular septal defect.
