Aneurysm of the Left Ventricle

Left Ventricular Aneurysm

Definition

LV Aneurysm
Axial CT through the left ventricle (LV) shows rounding of the apex and thinning of the overlying myocardium. This finding is consistent with an apical LV aneurysm most likely caused by LAD disease.
Note the fat dysplasia in the apical myocardium which confirms the prior infarct.

This cross sectional CT image of the heart shows calcified apex of the left ventricle associated with thrombus, characteristic of an LV aneurysm. The cause is almost certainly secondary to coronary artery disease and ischemic heart disease with secondary myocardial infarction.

This transverse CT scan through the apex of the left ventricle shows a focal calcification at the apex. The diagnosis evolves into a focal pseudoaneurysm of the LV apex.

This transverse CT scan through the apex of the left ventricle shows a focal bulge at the apex. There is an associated small focal calcification in the myocardium that was noted on a CT 3 years prior in this patient with a diagnosis of a focal pseudoaneurysm of the LV apex.
