Idiopathic Right ventricular pseudoaneurysm presenting with ventricular
tachycardia: A Case report
Right ventricular (RV) pseudoaneurysm is very rare and is seen after
penetrating chest trauma, cardiac surgery, infective endocarditis,
myocardial infarction, syphilis, endomyocardial biopsy, lead extraction.
Idiopathic right ventricular pseudoaneurysm is even rarer. They have
varied presentations depending on the etiology. Diagnosis is usually
made by echocardiography. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) helps
in delineating the aneurysm and relationship with surrounding structures
and helps in guiding the surgery. We hereby report a case of idiopathic
right ventricular pseudoaneurysm presented with ventricular tachycardia
(VT). Aneurysm was successfully treated by surgical excision. Patient
was doing well on follow up with no further VT episodes.
