Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Missile injuries to heart are one of the most severe penetrating chest injuries, and mostly fatal. The presentation in those who survive may be unusual and insidious. Pseudoaneurysms of the heart, usually sequel to myocardial infarction, may rarely present after penetrating cardiac wounds. Their management is a challenging one, and requires the provision of cardiopulmonary bypass. We report a case of ventricular pseudoaneurysm as a consequence of bullet injury, successfully managed in our center.
