n Cardiovascular Journal of South Africa - Comprehensive assessment of left ventricular pseudo-aneurysms with magnetic resonance imaging : review article

Volume 17, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1680-0745



In a small number of patients, myocardial infarction, trauma, infection or cardiac surgery are complicated by incomplete wall rupture and pseudo-aneurysm formation. We describe the advances made in the non-invasive assessment of this condition with the introduction of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and discuss the value of specific MRI techniques for comprehensive structural and functional cardiac assessment.
