Resection of a large postinfarctional ventricular aneurysm led to termination of intractable angina pectoris in one patient. The patient has been followed for 5 years and remains angina-free, even though aorto-coronary bypass surgery was not performed in this patient. The patient presented no evidence of congestive heart failure, arterial emboli, or cardiac arrhythmia before or after the surgery. Intractable angina alone in the absence of congestive heart failure, systemic embolism, and refractory ventricular tachyarrhythmia may constitute another indication for ventricular aneurysmectomy with or without concomitant aorto-coronary bypass surgery.

    Although hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) signs are more severe in aortic aneurysm cases than in angina pectoris cases, HPS-associated postoperative death should be considered more in both cases. This study analyzed a total of 183 Japanese patients, with 101 aneurysms, 79 anginas, and 3 with both,...
