Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A "pseudo-pseudo" aneurysm of the left ventricle due to mid-ventricular obstruction from asymmetric septal hypertrophy is presented. A case of mid-ventricular hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (MVHOCM) was evaluated by means of echocardiography, angiocardiography, gated cardiac blood pool scanning, and a TI-201 myocardial scan. The gated cardiac blood pool scan appearance of MVHOCM is similar to pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle. TI-201 myocardial imaging, however, was able to distinguish between MVHOCM and pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle.
