Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 69-year-old man had a posterior pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle shown by echocardiography and cardiac catheterization. The patient had resection of the pseudoaneurysm and did well. The case illustrates the usefulness of echocardiography for detecting and evaluating left ventricular pseudoaneurysm and the effectiveness of surgery for that entity.
