PMID:  8048785     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A sixty-three-year-old man presented himself with atrial flutter and congestive heart failure. Cardiac catheterization revealed that left ventricular diverticulum was located on the anterobasal wall with narrow connection to the left ventricular cavity. Coronary angiography revealed normal coronary arteries. The patient had been asymptomatic until adult life with no other thoracoabdominal or cardiac anomalies. This is an extremely rare finding in the adult population.
