Successful surgical repair of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm in a patient with subacute ST-elevation myocardial infarction
We report a successful surgical repair of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm in a patient with subacute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). In the case of expansion of the infarct related ventricular wall, early (within 24 hours) or late (3-5 days after STEMI) cardiac rupture should be always borne in mind in order to proceed to life saving prompt surgical repair.
