Abstract

Ventricular pseudoaneurysms are rare pathological entities that mainly arise in the context of myocardial infarction or post-cardiac surgery. The clinical presentation is usually non-specific, and at times patients are asymptomatic. Mortality is high even with timely surgical intervention.The authors present a case of postoperative recurrence of a left ventricular pseudoaneurysm superimposed on an ischaemic true aneurysm.
