Case series: Congenital left ventricular diverticulum.

Shah D, Kumar CP, Shah MS, Baraiya M - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2010)

Bottom Line: The patient is usually asymptomatic.However, complications like embolism, infective endocarditis, arrhythmia and, rarely, rupture can be the initial presentation.We report here two neonates with congenital left ventricular apical diverticulum associated with epigastric hernia.

ABSTRACT
Congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by a localized outpouching from the cardiac chamber. The patient is usually asymptomatic. However, complications like embolism, infective endocarditis, arrhythmia and, rarely, rupture can be the initial presentation. Diagnosis can be established by USG, echocardiography, CT angiography, and MRI. We report here two neonates with congenital left ventricular apical diverticulum associated with epigastric hernia.

Figure 0005: Case 1: Photograph of the baby shows a local swelling at the umbilical region

Mentions: The angiogram showed a large tubular contrast-filled channel arising from the left ventricular apex [Figure 3], narrowing as it approached the umbilicus. Both the pulmonary artery and the aorta could be seen arising from the right ventricle. The pulmonary artery seemed narrow at its origin [Figure 4]. Herniating bowel and the left lobe of the liver could be seen at the site of the swelling in the umbilical region [Figure 3]. The sternum was normal and showed four sternal ossification centers [Video 2]. Figure 5, a photograph of the baby, shows the swelling in the umbilical and supra-umbilical region.
