Pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle. Diagnosis by first pass scintigraphy


, : Pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle. Diagnosis by first pass scintigraphy. Clinical Nuclear Medicine 9(11): 625-630

False aneurysm of the left ventricle is a rare complication of myocardial infarction with a high propensity for late rupture. Timely diagnosis is important and surgical repair is curative in a high percentage of patients. A case in which a false left ventricular aneurysm was recognized by first pass radionuclide angiography and confirmed by contrast ventriculography is reported. Surgery was then performed successfully. The diagnosis of false left ventricular aneurysm using radionuclide angiography, as well as other diagnostic imaging modalities, is discussed.
