Abstract

Ventricular cardiac aneurysms associated with pregnancy are extremely rare. The effects of one on the other are not known. The pathophysiology of cardiac aneurysms as known in the nonpregnant state combined with the physiologic cardiovascular adjustments of pregnancy can be suspected of compromising the welfare of the pregnant patient. We recently treated a 21-year-old pregnant patient with a post-myocardial-infarction left ventricular cardiac aneurysm. The outcome was successful.
