[Giant left ventricular postinfarction pseudoaneurysm - an echocardiographic case report].

Abstract

We present a rare case of a 71-year-old man who had myocardial infarction 9 years ago. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography revealed presence of a large pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricular (LV) apex and anterior wall with thrombus. The diagnosis of LV pseudoaneurysm was confirmed by electrocardiography - gated multidetector computed tomography. The patient did not consent for surgery and remained on pharmacological treatment.
