Abstract

FALCAO, João Luiz de A. A. et al. Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm associated to severe mitral insufficiency, complicating inferolaterodorsal acute myocardial infarction. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2005, vol.84, n.6, pp. 488-491. ISSN 0066-782X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0066-782X2005000600011.

We described a case of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm associated to a severe mitral regurgitation, complicating a inferolaterodorsal acute myocardial infarction. The lesion was found in a routine echocardiogram during the in-hospital follow-up. The well-succeeded surgical strategy and the good clinical evolution of the patient were distinguished.
