Abstract

The authors report the case of a 19 year old young man with an aorto-right ventricular fistula caused by a stab wound. The diagnosis was not made initially during surgery to control haemorrhage (left hemothorax due to a damaged internal mammary artery). However, three weeks later, a continuous murmur was detected and the diagnosis established by echocardiography and cardiac catheterisation. The lesions were repaired by open heart surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass. The authors describe the main features of this condition based on their own experience and a review of the literature.
