Abstract

The preoperative differentiation of left ventricular aneurysm from pseudoaneurysm is a diagnostic challenge. This distinction is critical as the timing of surgical correction varies; elective for true aneurysm versus urgent for pseudoaneurysm. Our aim is to present a case report demonstrating these difficulties and to review imaging characteristics and the approach to distinguish the two entities.
