Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricle (LV) pseudoaneurysm is a late mechanical complication of myocardial infarction. A giant LV pseudoaneurysm is a rare presentation. We report a case of giant LV pseudoaneurysm in a post-MI patient who presented with gross congestive heart failure. The patient had a successful surgical repair of the aneurysm and had a favorable 3-mo outcome. The imaging modality and surgical treatment of the pseudoaneurysm are discussed.
