Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of a 63-year-old woman who presented with infective endocarditis and developed a pseudoaneurysm (PA) of the left ventricle presumably as a result of an embolic infarct. The diagnosis was made by typical features of PA on tranesophageal echocardiography and color Doppler studies. In addition, three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography showed the narrow neck of the PA. Findings were confirmed at surgery and she was discharged after successful repair. (Echocardiography 2011;28:E28-E30).
