Abstract

Infection of an endoventricular patch used for left ventricular aneurysm repair with formation of cardiocutaneous fistula is a rare but potentially serious complication. We report an adult patient who developed a cardiocutaneous fistula 1 year after repair of a third left ventricular aneurysm. The patient was successfully treated with a redo operation using a bovine pericardial patch with omental flap coverage. He is alive and well 10 years later.
