PMID:  8703494     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two cases of isolated left ventricular diverticulum are presented. A 12-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, both asymptomatic, were admitted to our Department for evaluation of an abnormal electrocardiogram and an abnormal cardiac silhouette, respectively. Both patients had the diagnosis confirmed by cardiac catheterization and angiography and underwent successful surgical correction of the abnormality. We discuss the diagnosis, prognosis, and surgical treatment of this entity and we advocate early surgical treatment for all diagnosed ventricular diverticula, even if asymptomatic.
