Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of a 39-year-old female with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) and a giant appendiform aneurysm of the membranous septum, illustrated by echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. From the literature a short review of the prevalence of spontaneous closure of VSDs together with the possible complications of persisting VSDs is presented. Since patients stay at risk in later years, follow-up at regular intervals is advised.
