Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm found by CT scan.

Hirose H, Matsunaga I, Strong MD - Open Cardiovasc Med J (2008)

Bottom Line: A 62-year-old male with a previous coronary artery bypass grafting underwent CT scan for evaluation of left epigastric pain.Findings showed a large left ventricular pseudoaneurysm, which was subsequently confirmed by left ventriculogram.The pseudoaneurysm was successfully repaired surgically.

Figure 3: Intraoperative photograph shows left ventricular pseudoaneurysm located in the posterolateral wall of the left ventricle. The pseudoaneurysm was filled with organized thrombus.

Mentions: The patient was then scheduled for resection of the LV pseudoaneurysm. After dissection of the anterior wall of the heart, further dissection of the lateral and posterior wall of the heart was performed under cardiopulmonary bypass because of dense adhesion. The LV pseudoaneurysm was located in the posterolateral wall of the LV (Fig. 3), adherent to the posterior pericardium. After complete immobilization of the LV, the pseudoaneurysm was opened under aortic cross clamp. The wall of the pseudoaneurysm was thin and filled with clots. The neck of the pseudoaneurysm was identified and closed with a Gore-Tex patch. The ventriculotomy was then closed with multiple buttressed sutures. The postoperative course was uneventful and he was discharged to a rehabilitation facility 10 days after surgery.
