Abstract

False aneurysms of the left ventricle complicating acute myocardial infarction are rare. Given they are only contained by pericardial adhesions, they are prone to rupture and hence surgical repair is mandatory. We report a successful repair of a ruptured false aneurysm and then briefly review the current literature.
