Abstract

Left ventricular (LV) pseudoaneurysm is a late mechanical complication of myocardial infarction (MI). A giant LV pseudoaneurysm is a rare presentation. We report a case of a giant LV pseudoaneurysm in a post MI patient, who presented with hemoptysis. Hemoptysis is a rare clinical presentation of LV pseudoaneurysm. The patient had successful surgical repair of the aneurysm and had a favorable outcome in 9 mo' follow-up. The imaging modalities and surgical treatment of a pseudoaneurysm is discussed.
