Loading player ... The player requires Flash Player plugin

Case description

In this video, we review a challenging case of a 48-year-old woman presenting with chest pain. We explore the role of Echo, CT, and MRI imaging, and highlight how surprising and dramatic results led to a diagnosis of a Left Ventricular Pseudoaneurysm (LVPA). Using excellent intraoperative surgical video, we also explore the best surgical approach to treating LVPA. Topics include:

● The diagnosis and possible etiologies of LVPA

● Critical role of imaging for diagnosis and for planning surgical management

● The keys to re-operating after previous, unsuccessful surgery to fix LVPA
