Producción científica: Articlerevisión exhaustiva


Background Cardiac pseudoaneurysms are a potentially life-threatening pathology with a variety of non-specific clinical manifestations. This case series uniquely shares a collection of rare pathologies with differing preceding risk factors and presentations, with an emphasis on the utility of multi-modality imaging in diagnosis and managementCase summary We present three cases of cardiac pseudoaneurysms. Case 1 is a 27-year-old woman with delayed presentation of a traumatic left ventricular pseudoaneurysm (LVP). Case 2 is a 73-year-old man with post-myocardial infarction LVP. Case 3 is a 38-year-old man with left ventricular outflow tract pseudoaneurysm after aortic valve replacementDiscussion Cardiac pseudoaneurysms are rare and important to diagnose in a timely manner. Advances in non-invasive imaging modalities have improved our ability to distinguish pseudoaneurysms from other pathologies, leading to more timely management.
