Abstract

Left ventricular free wall rupture (LVFWR) can occur after myocardial infarction. Sometimes LVFWR can be contained by a pericardium leading to the formation of the pseudoaneurysm. In view of the high tendency to expand and rupture an urgent surgery is indicated. We experienced a rare case of giant left ventricular apical pseudoaneurysm which was successfully managed with surgical intervention.
