Abstract

Subsequent to the repair of a true aneurysm from the posteromedial-basal aspect of the left ventricle, a 58 year old man developed a draining wound at the site of the sternotomy. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed recurrence of the aneurysm at the site of the previous aneurysm repair. This aneurysm had a wide neck and looked similar in appearance to the previous true aneurysm. However, at surgery the patient was found to have a ventricular pseudoaneurysm with a car-diocutaneous fistula.
