Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of unexpected death associated with an aneurysm of the left ventricle caused by nonpenetrating chest trauma is described. A review of the more recent literature on the incidence, pathological course, and prognosis of the posttraumatic ventricular aneurysm pointed out the necessity of suspecting cardiac damage in cases of blunt chest trauma especially when major injuries may obscure heart involvement.
