Congenital left ventricular aneurysm
A rare congenital non-syndromic heart malformation characterized by a bulging of the left ventricular wall connected to the left ventricle by a wide neck (with a ratio of the connection to the body of the anomaly >1). The dimensions of aneurysms have been described as small as 0.5 cm in diameter and as big as 8×9 cm in size. Most frequent locations are the left ventricular apex and the perivalvular area. Aneurysms can be a- or dyskinetic or show almost normal contractility. Patients may remain asymptomatic or present with systemic embolization congestive heart failure valvular regurgitation ventricular wall rupture ventricular tachycardia or sudden cardiac death.
