Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a descriptive compendium of anatomically interrelated aneurysms and aneurysmal-like structures arising in and around the left ventricular outflow tract. Images selected from the Mayo Clinic echocardiography database illustrate classic or typical examples of each entity. Essential morphologic features of each lesion are described. Clinical presentation, causes, and diagnostic echocardiographic features taken together can improve recognition and clinical management of this diverse group of anomalies.
