Abstract

We describe a patient with acute left ventricular wall rupture and pseudoaneurysm formation after myocardial infarction. We review the accuracy of 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography for detection of ventricular pseudoaneurysm and describe the use of real-time handheld 3-dimensional color Doppler echocardiography for the assessment of left ventricular rupture location, orifice geometry, and complex intracardiac flow before surgical correction.
