This article presents a case study of a 64-year-old white male with inferior left ventricular aneurysm. Aneurysms involving the inferior wall of the left ventricle are relatively rare, and the combination of severe mitral insufficiency as well as inferior wall myocardial infarction usually has a very poor prognosis. A unique aspect of the case described here is the development of a large ventricular aneurysm with severe mitral insufficiency following a single coronary artery disease of the right coronary, with an essentially normal left coronary system.

    A considerable fraction of collaterals has been shown to regress immediately after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), but the fate of these well-developed collaterals is unknown. The authors aimed to show the protective role of these recruitable collaterals in case of an...

    We describe a simple technique for left ventricular aneurysm without ventriculotomy. After confirming there is no thrombus in the left ventricular aneurysm, the aneurysm is pushed into the left ventricle and fixed with horizontal mattress sutures and running vertical sutures. This technique has...

    Antiplatelet agents such as sarpogrelate (SAR), a 5-hydroxytryptamine antagonist, and cilostazol (CIL), a phosphodiesterase-III inhibitor, are used in the management of peripheral vascular disease. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that both SAR and CIL prevent cardiac remodeling and...
