Left ventricular pseudo aneurysm (LVPA) results from contained left ventricular free wall rupture following either myocardial infarction or cardiac surgery. Untreated LVPA carries approximately 30-45% risk of rupture in the first year. Conventional treatment for LVPA is surgery which carries a mortality of about 20%. Interventional closure of LVPA has been reported from trans-arterial and trans-apical routes. Here we report successful hybrid closure of a LVPA under trans-oesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) guidance.
