His admission chest X-ray showed an abnormal cardiac silhouette with complete leftward displacement. He had a past history of blunt thoracic trauma due to a motor vehicle accident treated conservatively. We present our findings and surgical difficulty during an operation on a patient with a previously undiagnosed pericardial rupture. This is the first reported case of its kind in the cardiac surgical literature.||Gov't Doc #:||16352266||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10057||DOI:||10.1016/j.hlc.2005.01.004||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16352266||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Accidents, Traffic
