Abstract
The report presented a 20-year-old male case with multiple stab wounds on the right lateral chest wall, and a latent heart injury was found during the right lateral thoracotomy. A laceration on the right ventricle was verified by a median sternoctomy and repaired using an Inforce suture. The clinicians should not neglect the lower probability of life-threatening thoracic injuries following stab wounds to the chest, despite the initial location of anatomy.

Case Report
A 20-year-old male presented in the emergency room with multiple stab wounds on the right lateral chest wall about 4 h prior to his arrival. On admission, he could speak and localize pain. He was agitated and pale with the blood pressure 90/60 mmHg. A tachycardia of 110 beats per min was detected, but no murmur was heard in the apex area........
