Abstract

Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm formation following perventricular device closure of a muscular ventricular septal defect is a rare complication. We describe a case of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm in an infant with Swiss-cheese ventricular septal defects who initially underwent closure with an Amplatzer device using a hybrid approach. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully resected surgically.
