Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Isolated congenital intrapericardial aneurysm of the left atrium (LA) or the left atrial appendage (LAA) is a rare anomaly [Zhao 1999]. The patient usually presents with features of systemic embolization, serious arrhythmia, and severe congestive cardiac failure as a complication, which can be fatal. Once the condition is diagnosed, surgery is indicated [Zhao 1999]. We report a case of congenital left atrial appendage aneurysm in a woman who underwent excision of the same.
