Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Congenital left ventricular (LV) diverticulum is a rare malformation that can be alone or in association with other congenital abnormalities. Since the several complications have been reported in association with LV diverticulum, as cardiac rupture, heart failure, and endocarditis, patients with LV diverticulum who are managed with conservative treatment would require regular checkups to ascertain the absence of such complications. We report a case of LV diverticulum in a 47-year-old man. He took the serial three-dimensional contrast echocardiography, which was reliable and readily available tool for defining LV diverticulum and monitoring the presence of complications. (Echocardiography, 2012;**:E1-E3).
