This report describes the treatment of a patient who developed a chest-wall penetrating pseudoaneurysm 3 years after coronary bypass grafting and after the resection of a lateral wall left ventricular aneurysm twice. The patient presented with a pulsatile tumor in the left submammilar region. Surgery was done in deep hypothermia, with femoro-femoral cannulation and via a left anterolateral thoracotomy. The perioperative course was uneventful and the patient is still well 5 years after surgery.
