Studies have consistently documented that MCE can improve the ability to assess both global and regional left ventricular function by echocardiography. We report the case of an 83-year-old female(More)

A rare sequelae of chest trauma is a contained rupture of the left ventricle of the heart leading to the development of a pseudoaneurysm. This complication needs prompt recognition and repair because of the high likelihood of rupture and death. We report the case of a 47-year-old(More)
