We report a case of a 60-year-old woman who underwent emergency surgical repair of a ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle 10 days after acute myocardial infarction. The repair consisted of oversewing the rupture (2 cm long) on the posterior wall under cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient made a satisfactory recovery.
