Abstract

SANTOS, Luis Alberto Saraiva; SOBRAL, Marcelo Luiz Peixoto; SANTOS, Gilmar Geraldo dos  and  STOLF, Noedir Antonio Groppo. Coexistence of multiple mechanical complications from a single acute myocardial infarction: successful surgical treatment. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2005, vol.20, n.4, pp.438-440. ISSN 0102-7638.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-76382005000400013.

Pseudoaneurysms of the left ventricle and subpericardial aneurysms are rare complications of acute myocardium infarctions. This article is based on the case of a 68-year-old patient who developed an interventricular communication after an acute myocardium infarction. Surgical repair of this complication resulted in the coexistence of a pseudoaneurysm and a true aneurysm of the left ventricle as a late complication. A second surgical procedure was successful, based on resection of both complications with subsequent geometric reconstruction.

Keywords : Aneurysm false [surgery]; aneurysm [surgery]; Heart ventricles [abnormalities].
