ABSTRACT
Because pseudoaneurysms of the left ventricle, although rare, can rupture, their differentiation from true aneurysm is desirable. A case is described in which a pseudoaneurysm was diagnosed noninvasively by means of a gated radioisotope ventriculogram. The diagnosis was made by noting a narrow neck leading to a large chamber. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully excised at surgery.
