We describe the case of a 77-year-old woman with recent acute myocardial infarction complicated by ventricular septal defect and formation of a pseudoaneurysm, which were successfully treated surgically with a double patch repair. This case highlights the importance of early recognition of this serious complication, using clinical and echocardiographic examinations, and the various challenges encountered in surgical repair.
