Abstract

We present a case report of the findings of a left ventricular diastolic out pouching in a patient following acute myocardial infarction diagnosed by catheter left ventriculography and electrocardiography (ECG)-gated multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) findings. Left ventriculography demonstrated a small left ventricular diastolic out pouching, while MDCT enabled accurate evaluation of both left ventricular myocardium and lumen, establishing the diagnosis of an intramural small left ventricular pseudoaneurysm. This case illustrates the full capabilities of MDCT in the evaluation of left ventricular pseudoaneurysms.
