Left ventricular pseudo-aneurysm complicating a ruptured isolated
We report a case of 41-year-old woman who presented with chest tightness
and shortness of breath. Transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) showed left
ventricular (LV) pseudo-aneurysm of the inferior wall with preserved LV
systolic function. Coronary angiogram was normal. Surgical repair of the
pseudo-aneurysm with a pericardial patch was performed, and pathological
results confirmed rupture of an isolated congenital LV diverticulum.as
the most likely etiology.
